Each contract has its own risk profile and it is the responsibility of individual Contracting Authorities to assess and manage the risks associated with any given procurement using whichever tools they consider most appropriate.

Suppliers convicted of human trafficking offences must be excluded from public contracts under the Public Contracts Regulations 2015.
