About Social Procurement

TCBN supports social enterprises and other related vehicles to economic inclusion through commitments to social procurement.

Social enterprises are businesses that are directly involved in the production and/or selling of goods, services and training for the blended purpose of generating income and achieving social, cultural, and/or environmental aims. A CBA will be integral in fostering the establishment and successful growth of social enterprises affiliated with the LRT project. Specific measures should include, but not be limited to:

» Social procurement policies that enable social enterprises to deliver catering, printing, security and post construction services and/or recruitment and training delivery, plus other services;

» Social procurement practices that encourage staging contracts so that smaller businesses can have access to tendering opportunities.

» Work with the Social Enterprise sector to ensure that social enterprise companies can opt in to Project related contract opportunities if they wish.
