Procurement Hub, part of Places for People, has signed Impact Reporting to its growing procurement consortium.
Places for People invested in Impact Reporting in 2019 after working together for the past two years on social value monitoring and reporting. Procurement Hub plans to work with Impact Reporting to help customers and suppliers in the public sector maximise the amount of social value they generate through social and environmental endeavours.
Chris Farrell, managing director, Impact Reporting, said, “We signed this deal with Procurement Hub to share resources, engage with their suppliers and co-create content. We’ll be working together to help educate Procurement Hub’s customers about the value of social and environmental initiatives.”
Procurement Hub says that it is a ‘disruptor’ in the purchasing sector, with over 500 public sector customers across healthcare, education, charities and local authorities, and 850 suppliers on its various frameworks and dynamic purchasing systems.
Alan Heron, director of procurement, Procurement Hub, said, “Social value is an increasing area of focus for all kinds of suppliers and clients across our procurement solutions. A large part of public contracts is now demonstrating social impact, not just in terms of financials but the benefit to society and the environment.”
