Transport for London (TfL) doesn’t have specific equality and diversity checks or audits for consultants. Each contract is reviewed on a case by case basis to identify if there is an opportunity to improve the equality & diversity of the contracted workforce or its supply chain.

TfL’s Contract for Services states that Service Providers ‘shall assist and cooperate with Authority where possible in satisfying the duty under section 149 of the Equality Act 2010.’
