Quick Launch

Social Procurement

Print this Page
Social Procurement looks at ways in which Council and other organisations can create social values through the ways they purchase and procure goods and services. It’s all about creating positive outcomes and benefits for our communities.
Wollongong City Council was involved in the State Government’s Social Procurement in NSW [1.83MB] guide, which gives a good overview of what social procurement is, and why it’s important.
Social Enterprises are organisations that exist to fulfil a mission that’s consistent with a public or community benefit. They trade to fulfil that mission and they reinvest a substantial proportion of their profits or surplus to the fulfilment of that mission.

Special Event

We all spend money on goods and services. But do you want to implement a culture and process that spends those dollars better, creating more value for the communities in which we live and work.
This session, pressented in conjuction with the Illawarra Forum, will provide you with information, policy templates and practical tools so you can implement a “Better Buying” approach in your organisation.
