ATC Public Sector Manifesto
Towards sustainable development in the procurement and provision of language services for the public sector
The ATC’s newly published Public Sector Manifesto sets out our objectives towards sustainable development within the procurement and provision of language services in the UK’s public sector.
Actively engaging with the ATC’s member companies, our stakeholders within the public sector’s commissioning bodies, and the associations and organisations representing translators and interpreters, our objectives are to:
- identify and promote sustainable best practices within the procurement and provision of language services;
- proactively work together with our stakeholders on implementing realistic, concrete solutions that benefit the entire ecosystem;
- work towards a regulated environment, with more effective governance and oversight of the provision of language services at all levels; and to
- look beyond immediate challenges and into the future, supporting inspirational solutions and technology that advance the development of the industry, in meeting the needs of all users.
