Defining “social value” as a potentially desired outcome of government spending could be a way for non-profits to structure their “value creation” and messaging to counteract the narrative of “waste vs. efficiency”. Including “social value” in the value proposition would help not only non-profits but also social enterprises and for-profits to affirm their commitment to the creation of healthy social capital and center the work around how rather than why. 


For example, the great sacrifices expected from health and education professionals over the past few years with the “social value” component would acquire appropriate terminology while creating a potentially positive impact on procurement budgets.
