Modern Slavery Act 2015
Some new legislation, the Modern Slavery Act 2015, has now been added to the College’s terms & conditions.
We are in the process of requesting this information from all of our suppliers as follows:
- New and existing suppliers, cannot be used by the College until they forward a copy of a signed commitment and one of the following: if turnover exceeds £36m they need to provide a copy of their ‘Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement’ and a copy of their terms & conditions to verify they are aware of the obligations under the act OR if turnover is less than the £36m they need to provide us with a copy of their terms & conditions.
- Merseyside Colleges Association Intend portal (which we use to advertise all tenders & quotations) is ensuring all 1400 suppliers are being asked to provide the above information to be certified as an educational supplier
