Social conditions can be integrated into all three stages of the regular procurement process. In the following guide you will be led through the process step by step.

Guide: Social conditions 

Step 1: Preparing the invitation to tender
Determine whether and which social conditions are relevant to your public procurement. Identify any risks, and give details of them in the documentation. 

Step 2: Reviewing bids
Review bids for compliance with social conditions and, once the award has been made, reach agreement with the supplier. Determine what constitutes a reasonable level of effort and decide on the approach to be taken.

Step 3: Monitoring the contract
During implementation, check that the supplier is in compliance with the agreements reached. Maintain a dialogue throughout the entire contract period and in the event of violations seek possible solutions.
