The Cabinet Office is currently leading work with the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport to implement a package of measures for the future of social value and procurement, as set out in Government’s Civil Society Strategy. This includes training for government commercial staff to ensure that all major procurements in central government explicitly evaluate and report on their social value. Further information will be published in due course.

This is an extension of the application of the Social Value Act across central government departments, rather than legislative changes to the Act itself.
