SOCIAL VALUE: MOVING ON FROM THE GREEN BOOK 

REPORT FROM THE INFRASTRUCTURE FORUM

HM Treasury’s Green Book needs updating to capture a better assessment of the social value of infrastructure projects

 

In terms of attempting to measure the economic benefits and social costs of projects, things have moved on since the Green Book was designed. We recommend that government establishes an expert working group to design a clearly written, up to date model to assist those putting forward proposals.

 

The report sets out six ways to improve the Green Book approach and shows how the Social Value Act could be amended to require public procurers to introduce the new approach.
