  • Health and Safety – rigorous policies are required to be in place
  • Environmental considerations – the organisation needs to demonstrate what measures it is taking to offset any potential harm being caused to the environment as a result of its activities.
  • Status – this includes investigation into the directors of the organisation and also its sub-contractors and how capable the entire organisation is to deliver the required levels of work.
  • Financial solidity – accounts, profits and insurances are examined in order to assess these meet the required levels
  • Equal opportunities employment – the organisation needs to demonstrate how it is complying with this government requirement.
