PGN 03/18 - Human Rights in Public Procurement

Date published: 19 December 2018

This Procurement Guidance Note (PGN), developed in consultation with the Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission, describes the legal obligations placed on a Contracting Authority and Contractors to consider human rights when conducting a procurement process.

It also provides information on how to identify potential risks to human rights in contracts, and how to incorporate human rights considerations into contract documentation to mitigate against them.

A section has been highlighted within the PGN (Para 3.4) identifying the areas that must be complied with.
