Holmesglen supports Victoria’s social procurement framework and is committed to using its purchasing power to generate positive social value and outcomes beyond the monetary value of goods, services, assets and construction works.
In supporting Victoria’s social procurement framework, Holmesglen has developed and commenced implementation of its own social procurement strategy.  Our priority implementation activities under the strategy include;
  • creating opportunities to purchase goods, services and assets from social benefit suppliers including Aboriginal business, Victorian social enterprises and Victorian Australian Disability Enterprises
  • creating training and employment opportunities for socially and economically disadvantaged people
  • including social procurement objectives and performance outcomes into all tenders and subsequent contracts for supply
  • developing and implementing opportunities for economically or socially disadvantaged people and
