The Town of Creston incorporates social procurement into purchasing decisions, ensuring that they are socially, ethically and environmentally responsible while maintaining financial diligence. Social procurement asks that organizational purchasing decisions are made from a "best value" perspective, meaning that in addition to the budget and quality, vendor policies and practices respecting employment, environment, sustainability and local economic impact are considered. The Town adopted Social Values into our General Procurement Policy in 2023.
