SDS in allocating volumes will take into account the bids received and the priorities for the programme and may allocate to the estimated value specified or less, as appropriate.

SDS is committed to the delivery of high quality public services, and recognises that this is critically dependent on a workforce that is well-motivated, well led, has appropriate opportunities for training and skills development and is engaged in decision making. These factors are also important for workforce recruitment and retention, and thus continuity of service. Public Bodies in Scotland (SDS) have adopted fair work practices, which include:

— a pay policy that includes a commitment to supporting the Living Wage,

— being a living wage accredited employer

— developing a workforce which reflects the diversity of population of Scotland in terms of age, gender, gender identity, change ethnicity, sexual orientation and disability,

— a strong commitment to modern apprenticeships,

— support for learning and development,

— no usage of zero hours contracts, unless there is a legitimate business requirement, must be proportionate and reasonable to the services being procured,

— flexible working (including for example practices such as flexi-time and career breaks) and support for family friendly working and wider work life balance,

— Effective Voice: Trade Union recognition and representation where possible; otherwise alternative arrangements to give staff an effective voice,

— gender balance and wider representative workforce,

— promoting workplace innovation,

— Respect: treat each employee with respect and value diversity within the workforce.

It is expected that in order to ensure the highest standards of service quality in this contract contractors should take a similarly positive approach to fair work practices as part of a fair and equitable employment and reward package.
