London Councils Now Demand Suppliers Must Have Business Continuity Plans.

Senior purchasers have now developed a business continuity clause for all suppliers’ contracts between London’s 33 borough councils.

 
PRLog - Jul. 25, 2011 - The clause requires suppliers to London Councils to have business continuity plans in place to provide evidence that they have reviewed and minimised any risks to their business.  This will protect councils and minimise any risks to their operations.

The new business continuity clause has been developed by council purchasing chiefs, business continuity mangers and legal teams at local authorities to ensure that suppliers meet the Civil Contingencies Act.  

“No organisation, private or public sector, can now afford to be without a comprehensive, documented and fully integrated Business Continuity Management System consisting of policy, strategy, plans and a mechanism of continuous improvement” explained Dominic Cockram, Managing Director of Steelhenge “we are finding that companies are now increasingly reviewing the stability of their supply chain to mitigate any risks and secure their own resilience.”

Steelhenge can assist companies with their business continuity planning, training and exercising.  For further information on how we do this visit http://www.steelhenge.co.uk or contact us to discuss your requirements and to see how we can help you 0845 094 2117.
