Transparency on Commission procurement

The Commission is the independent regulator for equality, human rights and good relations in Britain. We are a statutory body established under the Equality Act 2006 and our sponsor government department is the Government Equalities Office (GEO).

The Coalition Government made a specific commitment to publish all new tender contracts over £10,000 from September 2010, for central Government departments and the agencies they sponsor.

Departments and agencies are asked to  follow guidance published on the Treasury website.

You can find details of Commission tenders for contract between September - December 2010 on the GEO website.

In some circumstances, limited redactions will be made to some contracts before they are published in order to comply with existing law and for the protection of national security.
