Contracting for Transformation

Procurement is an important lever for social change that has the power to alter the landscape of our systems. It can change practices and services, remove barriers for people and orient our systems towards eliminating inequities instead of perpetuating them.

Interested in doing things differently in your procurement process? Contracting for Transformation outlines six principles for making procurement more equitable as well as tangible tools, such as questions to pose to bidders and scoring guides. Although originally designed for human services, Contracting Transformation has applications across diverse fields including the built environment, healthcare, justice systems and more.

The system is rigged, and the solution isn’t just to create more programs for people harmed by these unfair systems. The solution is to reimagine these systems to make our country fairer and more equitable for everyone — which means ensuring that the places where we work, live, play and pray tap into people’s drive for wellbeing, instead of undermining wellbeing for some and enabling it for others.

That’s what we do.
