We are continuing to assess current operations and planning for improvements to the scheme in its second year.
One enhancement the we are working on is to replace the scheme’s “five-star rating” feature with a fairer system that better differentiates the maturity of suppliers. Because of this change to the present system, which currently provides five-star organisations with reduced audit requirements every other year, such reductions will cease to operate in August 2019. Fist working group was held on 6-Apr-19, principles were agreed and stage 1 is underway:
Stage 1 - Benchmarking - using existing information within the platform questionnaire
- our target is to have a draft for review at the next meeting w/c 10-June-19
Stage 2 - Benchmarking - adding in any additional questions or levels
Stage 3 - Maturity - levels of maturity within the audit questions
