This report challenges the belief that public spending and regeneration can be accomplished separately and demonstrates what the UK could look like if public spending achieved multiple objectives through the public procurement process. Evidence comes from public bodies who are currently achieving multiple objectives that reduce poverty, promote social inclusion, and ultimately save money for the public purse. These solutions maintain quality, price competitiveness, and conform to legal requirements.
