Barraket, Jo & Weissman, Janelle (2009) Social procurement and its implications for social enterprise : a literature review [Working Paper No. CPNS48]. The Australian Centre for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Studies, Brisbane. [Working Paper]
This paper reviews the available academic and policy literature to identify the possibilities and limitations of social procurement, and the factors that enable its implementation. In doing so, it aims to contribute to an evidence-based approach to social enterprise development in Australia, and to provide practical information of use to both policy makers and social enterprises considering social procurement arrangements. Based on the available evidence, the dominant focus of this review is on social procurement by governments.
