The business case for Social Enterprise Procurement

The business case for Social Enterprise Procurement

Social Enterprise Procurement is a way to align and deliver multiple strategic economic and social objectives across government. By leveraging the $140b+ annual government procurement spend, social and economic outcomes can be achieved through sustainable market activity. Embedding Social Enterprises into supply chains creates targeted employment opportunities for marginalised Australians while freeing up government resources that are needed elsewhere.
