Annie O’Gara




(a)      Is the Committee content with the manner of consultation of stakeholders who have offered full support in the drafting of the Ethical Procurement Policy?




(b)      Does the Policy live up to the elevated rhetorical claim within it, especially if, as it stands, a large multi-national with a complex structure can effectively evade the conditions related to Discretionary Exclusion, ie not feel any consequences for grave professional misconduct which renders their integrity questionable, whilst a small, Sheffield-based local business, cannot evade the consequences of its misconduct?




(c)      Is this Policy being rushed through, without proper consultation and exploration of all its implications and problems?




The Chair stated that written responses would be provided to the questions raised.
