Social Procurement Annual Report 2021-22

Building a fair, inclusive and sustainable Victoria through procurement.

17 May 2023

The report provides a snapshot of social procurement achievements made and stories of the people and organisations who have benefitted from this work.

The report also demonstrates the difference each government procurement can make to the lives of Victorians and Victorian communities.

It also sets a baseline to measure social procurement achievements in the future.


Victoria’s Social Procurement Framework was developed by the Department of Jobs, Precincts and Regions and the Department of Treasury and Finance. A range of departments and agencies across government contribute to the Social Procurement Framework annual report each year. From 1 January 2023, all functions relating to the Social Procurement Framework will be coordinated by the newly formed Department of Government Services. The Hon. Danny Pearson is the responsible Minister for the framework in his capacity as the Minister for Government Services.

This report was designed by Little Rocket. The engagement of Little Rocket is an example of the government’s Social Procurement Framework in action, directly contributing to the outcomes sought under the following 2 objectives: 

This is the fourth year that Little Rocket has designed the Victorian Government Social Procurement Framework Annual Report. Given so much of the work we conduct
is as a direct result of government social procurement, we are keen to help showcase this work and its direct effect where we can. It means jobs, experience, exposure and importantly impact.
