About Impact Partner
Impact partners are public and private company that engage in social procurement
Social procurement is a tool capable of bringing about positive systemic change for people in need. It ensures that organisational decisions to purchase are motivated not only by price economics but also by equally important social and environmental factors.
At IDEA, we make social procurement easy by connecting you directly to impact enterprises that have been vetted by MaGIC, one of the leading authorities in impact entrepreneurship in Malaysia.
Your decision to buy from an accredited impact enterprise can deliver immense benefits to a beneficiary group of your choice. Some of the impacts that can be achieved include:
What can you achieve with social procurement?
A single procurement contract can create multiple jobs for people at the bottom of the social pyramid. Job creation may be in the form of direct employment or skills development for employment.

Set an intention by choosing a beneficiary group that you are most concerned about as well as the products/services you are willing to purchase from an impact enterprise.
Explore the platform either searching for your desired impact group or the type of social goods/services that you are interested to purchase.
Once you identify the items/services you would like to purchase, create an account and send out a request for a quote to one or more impact enterprises.
The impact enterprises will contact you directly with the proposal, allowing you to migrate the selection process into your own procurement system.
An optional quarterly impact report can be generated inside your account’s control panel on the IDEA platform.
