The Equality Reference Group is a 'team' of 'critical friends' for Devon County Council, drawn from the voluntary and community sector to represent the protected characteristics in the equality act 2010. The protected characteristics represented at ERG are:
Lot 1: Age younger people
Lot 2: Age older people
Lot 3: Disability and carers
Lot 4: Race and ethnicity
Lot 5: Religion and belief
Lot 6: Sex
Lot 7: Sexual orientation and gender identity
This opportunity is for bidders to apply for the Protected Characteristics they wish to represent.
The procurement process is broken into two stages:
1) Expression of Interest - suppliers may submit an Expression of Interest for more than one Lot. The deadline to submit the expression of interest is 12:00 noon 17th June 2022
2) Request for Formal Quotation - only those suppliers who submit an Expression of Interest will be invited to submit a Bid.
