What does ‘direct award’ mean?

Direct award is a method by which a commissioning authority can directly call off services from a supplier, through a framework, without conducting a further competition.

Is direct award truly compliant?
What is meant by social value?

The Public Services (Social Value) Act 2012 requires “public authorities to have regard to economic, social and environmental wellbeing in connection with public services contracts”.

There is no conclusive list of what these benefits may be and therefore must be considered in the context of local needs. As a result, all public sector projects must contribute to the long-term wellbeing of communities.
