Our commitment to diversity

Terms of trade

Unless otherwise agreed beforehand, the Sport England standard terms of trade will apply to all procurements.

Tenders and contract opportunities

We procure everything from office equipment to financial, legal and research services – all the information you need can be found below.

Management agreement

Our management agreement with the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) sets out the framework of accountability within which we operate.

It also sets out DCMS’ priorities and the indicators used to measure our performance.

Triennial review report

Our triennial review with UK Sport considers both bodies’ form and functions and the case for them to remain as non-departmental public bodies (NDPBs).

The reviews are part of the Government’s public bodies reform programme and provide a strong challenge to the continuing need for NDPBs, assess their efficiency and effectiveness and examine their control and governance arrangements.

Complaints procedure

Our complaints procedure sets out how you can complain about something done by us, or a funded or recognised national governing body, or another organisation we fund.

We’ll keep all complaints confidential and only involve as many personnel or external parties as necessary.

If you make a complaint, we’ll treat you with respect and we expect you to treat our staff the same way. Making a complaint will not affect the level of service you receive from us.

Counter fraud policy statement

We encourage anyone with a concern about a funded project to contact us – you can do so via our contact page.

Meanwhile, below is our statement against fraud.

  • Sport England does not and will not tolerate any form of fraud, corruption or bribery. We are committed to carrying out our business fairly, honestly and openly at all times. We do not, and will not, engage indirectly in or otherwise encourage bribery. We are committed to the prevention, deterrence and detection of bribery. We have zero tolerance towards bribery. We aim to maintain anti-bribery compliance “business as usual”, rather than as a one-off exercise.
  • Sport England expects the highest standards of propriety from staff and organisations supplying services.
  • Sport England works with colleagues, external suppliers and grant recipients to ensure we minimise the risk of fraud. Sport England seeks to deter and prevent fraud, corruption and bribery by designing and implementing proportionate policies, strong internal controls and systems to minimise risk.
  • Sport England operates robust systems to detect fraud. Investigations into allegations of fraudulent activity are carried out by accredited counter-fraud specialists and adhere to the relevant investigatory legislation.
  • Upon detection of fraud or any related criminal activity Sport England works with the relevant authorities to pursue prosecution. In addition, we will seek civil recovery of any funds that have not been used for the stated purposes will be sought as well as reasonable costs in seeking recovery.
