Introduction top

At the Equality and Human Rights Commission we believe that everyone should be treated fairly and with dignity. Unfortunately this doesnt always happen. According to a survey carried out for us in 2007, discrimination and disadvantage are still common across Britain. We dont all have equal chances in life and some forms of discrimination are complex and deep-rooted. Sometimes people choose to ignore the rights of others even when this is against the law. This is why the Equality and Human Rights Commission is here. We aim to help Britain develop in a way that values the ideals that most of us hold dear respect, freedom, equality, dignity and fairness. These are also the core principles that underpin human rights - the basic rights and freedoms that belong to all of us as human beings.

Launched on 1 October 2007, our role is to:

- ensure people are aware of their rights and how to use them
- work with employers, service providers and organisations to help them develop best practice
- work with policymakers, lawyers and the Government to make sure that social policy and the law promote equality and
- use our powers to enforce the laws that are already in place.

- Description of scheduled purchases, plans, policy and practices.

Procurement Plan

The Commission is currently emerging from a Mid Term Organisational review which includes the possibility of the organisation aligning to a government procurement Shared Service. Once this issue has been resolved, hopefully by end of March 2011 a purchasing plan will be developed and agreed by our Senior Management Team.

Purchasing Policy/Procurement Policy

The Commission has recently renewed and updated its procurement policy and procedures. Copies of the policy are available by request.

Purchasing Practices/Procurement Procedures

The Commission procurement team works along the lines of a Category driven approach to managing the spend. All of the staff have a clear relationship with departments/directorates and programs this therefore attempts to manage the spend in a 'cradle to grave' type process.

The procurement team, corporate legal and PMO meet fortnightly to review and monitor tender/contract activity to ensure transparancy, compliance and that timelines are been achieved across the organisation.
