Sustainable Risk Assessment Support


It is a requirement of NHS Wales Procurement Policy and of Health Organisations Standing Financial Instructions for a sustainable risk assessment (SRA) to be carried out on all contracts with a value in excess of £25K. The SRA will identify those opportunities in the supply chain to address environmental, social and economic impacts as a consequence of the services and goods delivered to NHS Wales. We will use the outputs from the SRA to support and stimulate innovation that provides sustainable solutions and reduces the consumption of resources by working with and encouraging our supply chain.
