Social Procurement in Action

Procurement Team

Manager – Programs, Process and Systems

Lynn Johnson

Lynn Johnson is a champion for authentic impact of Victoria’s Social Procurement Framework and is committed to creating effective systems that support local, social and sustainable measurement to provide these insights.

Lynn has led the build of ICN’s flagship system, VMC that supports the data collection and management of Government project reporting.

Lynn is delivering accessible platforms to collect data from the supply chain and to manage monitoring and reporting requirements for Government and industry clients.

Social Procurement Framework and Local Jobs First Reporting

The Department of Jobs, Precincts and Regions and the Department of Treasury and Finance worked with the ICN to develop a joint reporting platform that will be used for both the SPF and LJF policies.

Social Procurement Framework and Local Jobs First reporting is an extended feature on VMC to report and monitor contract commitments and achievements of SPF and LJF contracts.

VMC Reporting will streamline the process and reduce administrative burden for suppliers. It will make it easier to capture social procurement commitments and outcomes, which will support Agency and Victoria government efforts to report local, social and sustainable outcomes from both policies.

From 1 July 2021, all contracts containing SPF commitments are required to be recorded on the VMC.

Social Procurement Assessment Tool

The Social and Sustainable Procurement Assessment Tool powered by ICN Gateway is designed to be a place of knowledge for businesses that have an interest in social and sustainable procurement and a stake in achieving outcomes.

ICN have constructed the process to reflect on the requirements it takes to be considered a business with social and sustainable outcomes. The self-assessment tool provides valuable insights for SMEs and also systematically supports ICN’s purpose of connecting businesses to opportunities.
