Social Procurement

Message from the CEO

At Cenitex, our Social Procurement Strategy is a vital part of how we are working to change procurement for the better. 

It’s an opportunity to engage with the community, our customers, and our suppliers to bring to life our values through procurement activities and delivery of services. 

Our Social Procurement Strategy priorities are: 

  • Opportunities for Victorian Aboriginal people 
  • Opportunities for Victorians with a disability 
  • Implementation of the Climate Change Policy objectives 

We are committing and delivering on procurement processes that deliver better social and sustainable outcomes for the State of Victoria, its people, and the environment. 

We’re not doing it because we must. We’re doing this because it is the right thing to do. 

What is social procurement? 

Social Procurement is when organisations use their buying power to generate social value above and beyond the value of the goods, services or construction being procured.

Cenitex has updated its Social Procurement Strategy in accordance with the Victorian Government’s Social Procurement Framework (SPF).

In support of our SPF objectives, Cenitex commits to working with suppliers with the industry experience, knowledge and capability needed to deliver goods and services that reflect the diversity of our Victorian Government customers and the Victorian communities we all serve.  Cenitex recognizes that an inclusive supply chain directly supports participation by all in both the sustainability and growth of Victoria’s economy.
