It involves looking beyond the price of each individual contract and looking at what the collective benefit to a community is when a public body chooses to award a contract.  To recognise the ‘time in kind’ donated by our Members which contributes to the Chamber’s social value work within Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce.
