Social procurement


The power of procurement to generate positive social impacts is gaining traction. This report presents the first comprehensive analysis of the state of social procurement in Australia and New Zealand from the perspective of procurers. Commissioned by IPA Personnel Services in partnership with the Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply (CIPS), Social Traders and Ākina Foundation, and undertaken by the Centre for Social Impact Swinburne, project findings are based on a survey of 179 procurement professionals and social procurement champions across all sectors in both countries.
