Social Value as a Service

Being a part of Team Forces already helps organisations demonstrate their commitment to social value through giving back to the armed forces, but quantifying this objectively can be challenging. In response, we are now offering Social Value as a Service to help our supporters better govern, monitor and measure social value impact which will increase performance in tendering for contracts and sustain stakeholder confidence in programme delivery.

Evidencing historic and planned social value impact is now a key dependency in winning and retaining UK Government business with social value compliance now worth between 10 and 30% of the score in all tender evaluations. As a result, Team Forces has developed a new service to our sponsors to better support compliance to Cabinet Office requirements and leverage their contribution to our charity and Impact Projects.

Team Forces Social Value as a Service proposition will support improvements in your overall tender response score and future-proof good performance by offering valuable case references for key deal Model Award Criteria (MACs).

How to get involved

In the first instance contact our new Director of Social Impact, Danny Flack and book a 30-minute Team’s call that provides an introduction and overview of the service. If you subsequently decide to invest in our Impact Projects and also want to adopt the Tool Kit, our team will provide a one hour training session for your wider sales/bid community. The Tool Kit includes: a social value calculator, candidate method statements, model answers, bespoke dashboards, key performance indicators (KPIs) and case studies – all of which are proven to have scored 100% in recent MOD tender evaluations.

TheTool Kit will help your organisation best describe and objectively evidence positive social value, both locally and nationally. Our team of analysts are intimately aware of our range of Impact Projects and can advise on which projects best align to MAC criteria prioritised by HMG for your key deals and major bids. We are confident that applying Team Forces Social Value as a Service will assure a high evaluation score.

Our company deals with both Government and prime contractors. I’m quite convinced that we lack the sophistication of larger organisations and could benefit from the services, skill set and tool set that you offer if we are to properly capitalise what we are doing, and can offer, with respect to Social Value.

Feedback from client - October 2022

One of our Impact Projects is the Ulysses Trust which enables Cadet Forces around the UK to undertake challenging and adventurous expeditions. Young people from very different backgrounds and geographies sharing challenges and hardship together means these expeditions are among the most effective vehicles to help social mobility, cohesion, inclusion and the levelling up agenda.

The Trust is delighted to be working with Team Forces, as we have so much common ground. I see great opportunity for both organisations that will undoubtedly benefit a range of young people – particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds and regions.
