The Care Inspectorate and Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC) are carrying out an equality impact assessment (EIA) of our new joint Procurement Strategy. In addition to ensuring we meet our legal obligations, we are hoping that this assessment will be a practical way of examining our strategy, asking for feedback and determining what effect it may have on different equality groups.

This EIA is also an opportunity to promote inclusiveness and help us deliver services that are accessible and which meet the varied needs of our stakeholders

As part of our consultation process, we invite you to review the proposed strategy and answer the questions in the survey by Wednesday 17 August 2016.
