Suppliers' Charter

Following consultation with the Procurement Supply Group, as part of a wider review of support provided to small and medium enterprises (SMEs), it was recognised that the suppliers’ charter is now largely mandated (and therefore superseded) under legislation.

There is now a duty on contracting authorities to facilitate the involvement of SMEs, third sector bodies and supported businesses in the process, and the requirement for their procurement strategy to outline how they will consult and engage with those affected by its procurements.

If you have any questions relating to this please email the Procurement Engagement Team
