Procurement - SME and third sector action plan 2024-2026: equality impact assessment

Equality impact assessment to support publication of our Small and Medium Enterprise (SME) and third sector procurement action plan.

Stage 4: Decision making and monitoring

Identifying and establishing any required mitigating action

Have positive or negative impacts been identified for any of the equality groups? Assessment has been made that the publishing of the Action Plan will not have impact on equality groups.

Is the policy directly or indirectly discriminatory under the Equality Act 2010?


If the policy is indirectly discriminatory, how is it justified under the relevant legislation?


If not justified, what mitigating action will be undertaken?


Describing how Equality Impact analysis has shaped the policy making process

Design and drafting of the Action Plan has been made in accordance with the Scottish Government’s commitment to equalities in all aspects of our policy development. The appropriate configuration of impact assessments being undertaken reflects this process.

Monitoring and Review

The monitoring and evaluation of this EQIA will align with any updates to the SME and Third Sector Action Plan.
