Event description
A conversation with CCSPI & Royal Roads University for suppliers and vendors to better understand social procurement and reporting outcomes.

About this Event

This 1 hour conversation is for suppliers and vendors to better understand social procurement and reporting out on social outcomes. The goal of the conversation is to bring in vendor perspectives to help inform a region-wide measurement framework. This framework will create standardization and consistency around measuring and reporting social outcomes.

By participating in the conversation, you will help identify key indicators and processes that are efficient, measures what matters, and provides value back to vendors, institutional buyers and communities. This session is primarily for businesses and organizations that are interested in procurement or do business in the Vancouver Island and Coastal Communities region.

Important: Informed consent and ethical guidelines

Purpose of the research: Co-develop and pilot an impact measurement framework with CCSPI, a member-based social procurement initiative on Vancouver Island. The session will refer to your views, opinions, and experiences regarding impact measurement and the public procurement process.

Attribution: Please note that your valuable ideas and opinions will appear in the report itself. However, no personal information such as your name or personally identifiable information will be used to attribute those comments to you. Your responses will be aggregated with other participants’ responses and reported in an anonymous format.

Confidentiality: Participants are asked to maintain confidence of all participants and any information shared during the meeting. If we do wish to attribute anything in our research to you or your organization, we would obtain your expressed permission to be identified in the research. This in no way waives the confidentiality of the rest of the information obtained. Similarly, if you choose not to participate in this research project, this information will also be maintained in confidence. All documentation will be kept strictly confidential. Session data will be retained and stored until the end of the research project (November 2022), at which time it will be destroyed.

Data collection and storage: The session will be recorded and the researchers may also take some hand-written notes. Data recorded on the Zoom platform is stored in the USA. Data stored on servers in the USA may be subject to examination by the US government under the USA Patriot Act. While this likelihood is small, we are required to inform you of this possible risk.

Withdrawing from the study: Your participation is completely voluntary. If you do choose to participate, you are free to withdraw at any time up to the point until information has been aggregated in any final reports and publications. In agreeing to participate, you are not waiving any legal rights.
