Social Value (1617097)

1. A copy of, or link to, the CCG’s social value policy, strategy, framework or similar document if there is one.

NHS Calderdale CCG’s Procurement Policy (provided) outlines the CCG’s response to the requirements of Public Service (Social Value) Act 2012.  NHS Calderdale CCG is also a signatory to a Social Value Commissioning Charter which was agreed by partners at Calderdale Health and Well Being Board on the 19th March 2015.   A copy of the Charter is also provided

2. How has the CCG applied the Public Services (Social Value) Act 2012 in its commissioning, tendering and grant making?

NHS Calderdale CCG applies the principles of the Act.  At the outset of any procurement it undertakes to establish whether the service to be commissioned facilitates the use of such criteria. The application of the principles of the Act are best demonstrated through the CCG’s approach to grant-making in Calderdale, particularly in its support for developing capacity within Calderdale Voluntary and Community Sector (VCS) organisations facilitated by Voluntary Action Calderdale (VAC)

3. Has the CCG applied the concept of social value below the OJEU threshold for services, or for contracts other than for services?

Social values, where appropriate, are incorporated into all procurements

4. The percentage and number of tenders over the past 12 months where the Public Services (Social Value) Act 2012 has been applied and social value considered (that is to say, how much use does the CCG make of the Act).

Over the last 12 months, NHS Calderdale CCG has undertaken 21 procurements. NHS Calderdale CCG applies the principles of the Act at the outset of any procurement it undertakes to establish whether the service to be commissioned facilitates the use of such criteria.

5. Where social value has been considered and is weighted in assessing tenders, what is the typical weighting for social value in the CCG’s scoring across those contracts?

NHS Calderdale CCG applies the principles of the Act at the outset of any procurement it undertakes to establish whether the service to be commissioned facilitates the use of such criteria. In this sense, social values are considered; however, for most procurements carried out by the CCG for specialist health services, it has not been appropriate to include these criteria as a weighted element of evaluation.
