  6. Approach and Delivery Learning Days • What are Community Benefits (CBs - ESE)? Why are they important? • Are there any legal issues surrounding encouraging and measuring CBs? • How does this fit into specification writing, link to the procurement process and MEAT evaluation? • How can I engage with the 3rd Sector including SMEs, BMEs, Social Enterprises and Voluntary Organisations to maximise CBs, and what are the challenges? • How can I support the development of my existing and future Suppliers to achieve CBs? • I can see an opportunity where greater CBs could be delivered, but the current Supplier base is unable to support me, what should I do? • How does this fit into my Contract Management process?
