Invitation to Tender for the Development and Assessment of Diversity Action Plans (DAPs)
Applications of Interest are invited from formally constituted organisations to produce a guidance document to support funded bodies to address the diversity requirements in “A Code for Sports Governance” (Code).
Sport England and UK Sport have recently launched A Code for Sports Governance. All organisations funded at ‘Tier 3’ level by Sport England and UK Sport must comply with the Code by 31 October 2017. A copy of the Code is available at https://www.sportengland.org/news-and-features/news/2016/october/31/new-code-for-sports-governance/
A major new element of the Code is the requirement for funded organisations to take appropriate actions to support greater diversity on their boards. Requirements 2.1 to 2.3 (see pages 42-43 of the Code) give further details. In fulfilment of these requirements, UK Sport and Sport England are asking funded organisations to produce Diversity Action Plans setting out how they will increase (or maintain) board diversity in accordance with the requirements of the Code.
Our expectation is that these Diversity Action Plans will meaningfully drive greater diversity in the boards of funded organisations. They must be in place by 31 October 2017. UK Sport and Sport England wish to give support to funded organisations to meet these requirements. We need some expert resource to help us do this.
Interested parties are invited to apply to deliver the deliverables set out in the full tender document, which is available at the above link by 12 noon on the 19 June 2017. Please send your applications to Cathy Hughes on email@example.com and Asantewaa Brenya on firstname.lastname@example.org by the date and time above. If you have any questions, please contact Cathy or Asantewaa.
