Modern Slavery

The aim of Dundee and Angus College is to provide its communities with the highest possible standard of education, training and learning.  The College has a commitment to ensuring that staff work efficiently and effectively in the best interests of the College, and that the College as a whole demonstrates a high standard of governance, management, academic integrity and financial propriety.

Any failing in the propriety of governance, management, financial control, or academic integrity can have serious consequences for the success of the College as a whole, and for the value placed on the services the College provides.  As a result, all staff should be aware that the College will adopt a zero tolerance approach to slavery and human trafficking and that there should be an understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains and in our day to day business operations

We engage with a number of private and public sector organisations in carrying out our business and regularly undertake activities by partnering with these organisations. Our procurement activities take place primarily in Scotland, and our contractors and suppliers are predominantly UK or EU based.

We carry out our procurement activities in accordance with a clear Procurement Strategy and related Policy which are developed in conjunction with Advanced Procurement for Universities and College (APUC) and aligned to the EU Procurement Directives and Procurement Reform (Scotland) Act 2014.

We expect our partners, suppliers and contractors to ensure that their goods, materials and employee-related supply chains comply with the Modern Slavery Act 2105 and are transparent, accountable and auditable in their business.
