Equal Opportunities in Procurement

St Helens Borough Council developed its Procurement Equality Standard as part of its Corporate Procurement Strategy.

The Procurement Equality Standard is designed to ensure that:

(a) all council commissioning and procurement processes apply a consistent approach to giving ‘due regard’ to the duties of the Equality Act 2010 and the Human Rights Act 1998; and

(b) all external suppliers, service providers and contractors are committed to:

(i) act in accordance with the duty of the Equality Act 2010; and
(ii) the objectives of the council’s Comprehensive Equality Policy:

  • Eliminating unlawful discrimination, harassment and victimisation
  • Advancing equality of opportunity
  • Fostering good relations between people in a diverse community
