Let's Talk Social Procurement

Activity Description

Social procurement is one of the greatest untapped opportunities for social, cultural and environmental impact in Te Tairāwhiti. Social procurement seeks to strengthen social and economic outcomes and increase job opportunities through maximising local spend in the region.

It’s the intentional purchase of goods and/or services, by government, business and consumers, that results in positive change. Social Procurement means using procurement or spending as a tool to generate benefits beyond the goods and services required.

This online workshop includes panelists from Amotai, Ākina Foundation and ICONIQ Group. Our presenters will discuss their roles in the area of Social Procurement from local government, to suppliers through to policy. 

These are important conversations in our communities. How and where we spend our money matters. Let’s start building momentum around this important piece of work.
