The Race Relations Act 1976, as amended by the Race Relations (Amendment) Act 2000 (the RRA) gives AiB a statutory duty to promote race equality. To this end, the RRA requires AiB to have due regard to the need to:
- Eliminate unlawful racial discrimination
- Promote equality of opportunity
- Promote good relations between people from different racial groups
In order to fully comply with its duty under the RRA, AiB will take steps to ensure that its procurement activity and resulting contracts also promote race equality. Further information on the procurement aspect of Race Equality can be found on the Scottish Government website.
