Summary

Summary

Embedding equality into procurement to support the objectives of the organisation as set out in relevant policies and/or strategies is possible.

This can be achieved through early supplier engagement which is essential to allow the market to understand and prepare their response to tender requirements, the selection of suppliers, the inclusion of relevant and proportionate requirements in the specification, and the evaluation of relevant and proportionate award criteria.
