Tackling Modern Slavery in Supply Chains

The Cabinet Office has published a Public Policy Note (PPN) and guidance which sets out how UK Government departments must take action to ensure modern slavery risks are identified and managed in government supply chains.

The tackling modern slavery in government supply chains guide has been drawn from a variety of sources, particularly Protecting Human Rights in the Supply Chain, a guide for public procurement practitioners by Professor Olga Martin-Ortega and Andy Davies, published in 2017 by London Universities Purchasing Consortium, the University of Greenwich, Advanced Procurement for Universities and Colleges and CIPS.

Don Bowman, LUPC Director said: “LUPC is pleased to have contributed alongside other public sector organisations to the modern slavery guide. Protecting human rights in the supply chain is such an important consideration for procurement across all sectors.”
