It comprises of 10 principles for procuring well-being for Wales, ensuring the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015 is at the centre of all procurement decisions.

Making it a crucial time to “ensure public sector expenditure delivers even greater value in contributing to positive social, economic, environmental and cultural outcomes.”
