Community Benefit Clauses

Community Benefit Clauses (CBCs) are contractual clauses which can be used to build a range of economic, social or environmental conditions into the delivery of public contracts. CBCs can be viewed as contributing to the Best Value and sustainable procurement agendas, and allow organisations to contribute to the achievement of outcomes which benefit their communities by specifying contractual requirements which seek to deliver such wider social benefit.

Community Benefits which can potentially be included as contractual clauses include:

  • Employment and training opportunities for the long term unemployed and disadvantaged individuals
  • Supply chain initiatives including creating opportunities for social enterprises and small and medium sized enterprises.
  • Provision of facilities for all
  • Contributions to achievement of education and training targets
  • Support for community initiatives
  • Environmental targets
