Equality North East

Government consultation on procurement and the Equality Duty

On 27 February 2015, the Government published a consultation inviting views on the proposal to revise best value statutory guidance to include further guidance on the requirements of the Public Sector Equality Duty in relation to public sector procurement.

The consultation closes on 20 March at 11.45pm
