City of Calgary Social Procurement Case Study

Feb 4th, 2022

This case study details the process Buy Social Canada took in collaboration with the City of Calgary to add social value considerations to their Sustainable, Environmental & Ethical Procurement Policy (SEEPP). More than a policy, this updated framework is a pathway for building an inclusive ecosystem for public value through procurement.
