While the Public Services (Social Value) Act 2012 is kept under constant review, there are no current plans to amend it. Under the Act commissioners must consider how improvements to the social well-being of their local area can be achieved from the services they are procuring. The Government believes that this is the right approach to improve the quality of public services, whilst creating better value for money for taxpayers.
