The Social Procurement Framework imposes mandatory planning requirements on:
- departments and agencies – to prepare a Social Procurement Strategy
- government buyers:
- to incorporate social procurement into regular procurement planning, or
- to prepare a Social Procurement Plan during procurement planning.
The value of the individual procurement activity determines which requirement applies.
These requirements focus on the planning phase of the procurement lifecycle.
