Is social procurement consistent with the Queensland Procurement Policy (QPP)?

Yes, achieving value for money is central to procurement practice for government buyers; garnering the best value for Queensland is more than just the ‘price paid’. Opportunities to advance economic, environmental and social objectives must be considered as part of a broader context of value for money.

For detailed information about how social procurement is consistent with the QPP, see principle 2 (page 4) and clause 2.2 (page 5) of the QPP (476KB).
