Equality in contracts

EQUALITY IN CONTRACTS

“Lothian and Borders Police remains fully committed to delivering diversity and equality as the highest priority within the normal flow of all of our work. We expect to play our full part in creating a society that is at ease with its component parts and that has the full trust and confidence in the police service that protects and cares for it. We shall promote a holistic approach to the maturing equality agenda and support the ultimate aim of a more tolerant and cohesive society. Our new equality scheme will endeavour to better engage with the minority communities to earn their trust by demonstrating a convincing set of long-term outcomesthat meet their individual needs.”

Chief Constable

Pre contract procurement

PRE-CONTRACT - PROCUREMENT

LBP promotes “Diversity and Equality” in the tender process:

“In evaluating tenders we will look for suppliers who can demonstrate that they understand their responsibilities and operate with due regard to the legislation”.

Tender Questionnaire:

A questionnaire is issued as part of the Tender documentation. Extracts from the questions are shown below:

Q) Is it your practice not to discriminate directly or indirectly on grounds of colour, race, nationality or ethnic or national origin, disability, gender, religion or belief, sexual orientation or age in relation to decisions to recruit, select, remunerate, train, transfer and promote employees?

Q) Is it your policy as an employer to comply with your statutory obligations under the Sex Discrimination Act 1975, as amended, the Sex Discrimination (Gender Reassignment) Regulations 1999, the Equal Pay Act 1970, and the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 – all of which apply in Great Britain – or equivalent legislation in the countries in which you employ staff?

FINALLY

I am Diversity Champion for Police Headquarters

I am Deputy Chair of the Force’s LGB&T Support Group

“Under the Employment Equality (Sexual Orientation) Regulations 2003, employers are legally required to tackle homophobia in the workplace. Supporting an LGB&T staff network is a good way for employers to show their commitment to tackling homophobia.” Stonewall
