Devex: FCDO allows Save the Children to resume bidding on contracts
“The United Kingdom government is allowing Save the Children to resume bidding for government aid contracts after a sexual misconduct scandal saw the charity withdraw itself from the process more than two years ago. The charity, one of the largest in the U.K., has taken ‘significant steps’ to improve its safeguarding and now meets Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office standards, according to a statement from the department…” (Worley, 9/10).

Additional coverage of Save the Children’s resumption of bidding is available from The Guardian.
