star this property answer text <p>The Supplier Review delivered a number of measures to make it easier for new and smaller businesses to win funding from DFID and ensure fair treatment of sub-contractors. Following consultations with small and medium sized enterprises and NGOs three tiers of reporting requirements for the Supply Partner Code of Conduct have been developed to ensure our processes do not create disproportionate burdens for smaller organisations and NGOs. We are now designing a large new funding framework with dedicated “lots” for smaller suppliers. Furthermore, we continue to hold regional Open for Business events, led by Ministers, across the country to help local businesses understand our processes and encourage them to compete for DFID business. This is all helping DFID to tackle potential barriers and makes it less onerous, costly and time consuming for smaller companies to compete for our contracts.</p> more like this
