Disability employment and social procurement with South East Water


By Jennifer Lumsden, July 29 2019

Marriott has been working for the water industry for 20 years. Late last year, Marriott Enviro Management Services (EMS) won a tender with South East Water (SEW) to deliver grounds maintenance services.

SEW’s Strategic Procurement Co-ordinator; Matthew Yam said “SEW is proud to continue to work with EMS, who have been delivering outstanding grounds maintenance services for the past six years.

“Our business relationship delivers benefits beyond the value of the services being procured, in creating meaningful employment for disadvantaged groups, and making a difference to their lives. The EMS contract is strongly aligned with the Victorian Government’s Social Procurement Framework (SPF), and our own objective of promoting social, economic and environmental outcomes and benefits from our procurement,” he added.

The new contract provides people with disability a significant and meaningful opportunity to work, to learn and to participate as part of a high functioning team and to eventually transition into the open employment market.

“At Enviro Management Services, we’re committed to providing quality work and sustainable outcomes through social programs that deliver value twice, through quality work and through a workforce that demonstrates social inclusion. We value our partnership with South East Water; together we are able to build a socially inclusive workforce that better reflects the community,” said EMS Divisional Manager, Raymond Lee.

All profits are invested back into Marriott Support Services.
