Triple Bottom Line (TBL) Procurement

Procurement has increasingly been recognised as a critical strategic tool for achieving a broad range of organisational objectives. Over the last few years, procurement policies and practice have been broadened to address issues such as environmental sustainability, local economic development and social objectives, yet many organisations are still struggling to achieve a genuinely integrated triple bottom line approach.

PMMS works closely with clients to assist in effectively embedding their TBL objectives in a balanced and effective way into their procurement practice.

Social Procurement Development Program

As part of this commitment to supporting triple bottom line procurement, PMMS is pleased to announce the establishment of the Social Procurement Development Program.

Public, private and not-for-profit organisations around the world are increasingly realising the community and organisational benefits, and the competitive advantages available through a commitment to incorporating social procurement into their practice. In Australia, there is a growing desire from many organisations to better integrate their social and community objectives and their modern commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) into mainstream organisational activity.

The Social Procurement Development Program is designed to engage the key stakeholders in your organisation in the possibilities available through social procurement, while providing a tested and structured methodology to achieve sustainable change. Each part of the program can be tailored to meet the needs of your organisation. Key steps include:

  • Engagement and Awareness

  • Research and Opportunity Analysis

  • Policy and Procedures Review

  • Program Development

  • Procurement Process Implementation Support

  • Communication, Education and Training
