If you require any further information about the Fund please
through 4 core aims:
- workforce development;
- community investment;
- environment and sustainability.
Each objective has a measurable outcome and delivery vehicles are built into the frameworks to ensure that the outcome is achieved.
During the tender process prospective suppliers and contractors were evaluated on their responses demonstrating activities and projects they’d participated in which brought about social and economic benefit. Applying this approach has resulted in frameworks populated by contractors who understand the concepts behind social economic regeneration and can also contribute to the strategies which lead to its successful delivery.
In February 2014 the Fund was shortlisted as a finalist in the National GO Excellence in Public Procurement Awards 2014/15 for the Sustainability or Corporate Social Responsibility Initiative of the Year Award.
In June 2014 the Fund was shortlisted as a finalist in the national CIPS Supply Management Awards 2014 for Best Contribution to Corporate Responsibility.
