Following the publication of our Procurement Strategy 2020-23, we reaffirm as a key priority, our responsibility and commitment to addressing Modern Slavery. To support in delivery of this, 采购小组已通过高等教育采购协会(HEPA)完成有关“现代奴隶制指南”和“保障供应链中的人权”的电子学习。. This has been further supplemented by engagement with the Crown Commercial Services webinar on Tackling Modern Slavery.

365足彩外围网站app积极参与其采购联盟SUPC(南方大学采购联盟),通过将对奴隶制和人口贩运的核查作为合作采购活动的一部分,支持道德采购.

对于内部招标或合同,365足彩外围网站app的大学的条款和条件和供应商入职程序是反奴隶制和人口贩运,并确保现代奴隶制和人口贩运的潜力得到适当的考虑.

要解决这个问题,最好的办法是通过与供应商、高等教育采购联盟以及HEPA(高等教育采购协会)等专业网络进行持续和积极的合作。, through which the sharing of experience will establish best practice.

We will expand dialogue with suppliers to the University, to explore collaborative supply chain mapping, whereby both the costs and outputs/benefits can be shared. 在此之前,该大学与其他九所高等教育学院也参与了这项活动, with a PhD research project, looking at university modern slavery reporting. 在过去一年中,全球大流行病严重阻碍了这方面的进展, 不过,小组成员之间仍会相互支持和参与,在下一个报告年度再讨论这个问题.
