The Social Enterprise Coalition has just published a new guide called Working with the Public Sector: Busting the Myths. Written by BSSEC member Anthony Collins Solicitors, the guide can be downloaded here.
The guide seeks to support the increasing number of social enterprises moving into public services, equipping them with a sound understanding of the procurement rules, practices and processes..
Those entering the public sector market for the first time commonly face challenges because the rules surrounding procurement are often complex and difficult to navigate — but not always as forbiddingly difficult as one might be led to understand. The guide busts ten popular myths about public sector procurement and also offers advice for contracting bodies looking to commission services that deliver added social value.
