Feedback from Equality Forums and other interested parties:
It would be good to take a look at how this policy impacts on different equality groups through user data. For example, debt recover and late payment - are certain groups more likely to find themselves in a debt management procedure than others and could this constitute discrimination. There is also no mention of referral to other University services such as Counselling - especially for students.

In terms of suppliers, a mention of the new equality legislation around procurement would be positive.

Consultation open: No
