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.
