The State of Social Procurement Webinar Series

As a certified social enterprise committed to positively impacting people through recruitment, IPA wants to see social procurement reach all sectors of government, business and community sector purchasing. Social procurement is such an effective way to apply buying power to help reduce disadvantage in society and support positive social outcomes.

Our free webinar series digs into the recommendations of The State of Social Procurement in Australia and New Zealand 2021 report and reaches further by discussing additional practical frameworks and guidance for procurement professionals combined with insights from industry specialists and benefit suppliers.

Two thirds (66%) of organisations in Australia and New Zealand that are engaged in social procurement do not have specific spend targets. What difference would targets make to driving positive outcomes? And what should those targets focus on? 

This free webinar digs into the recommendations of The State of Social Procurement in Australia and New Zealand 2021 report to ask what knowledge, tools and frameworks can help organisations and suppliers set realistic and specific spend targets and areas of impact.

Last year, IPA commissioned Swinburne University and the Centre for Social Impact to survey the procurement sector. The result of this action has built the State of Social Procurement in Australia and New Zealand report - now available to read at cips.org. IPA is delivering the report's findings with Social Traders, CIPS (The Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply) and the Ākina Foundation based in New Zealand. Our collective intention with the report is to drive attention to the importance of social procurement, and how to acquire goods and services that give back to communities.
