To meet this requirement an Equalities Duties Assessment Framing Note has been produced for SEStran by Stantec Ltd consultants, setting out the approach to be taken.

We are pleased to share a report from the National Records of Scotland (NRS) outlining the assessment of SEStrans Records Management Plan (RMP) by the Public Records (Scotland) Act 2011 Assessment Team following its submission to the Keeper on 30th January 2017.
The assessment considered whether the RMP of the South East of Scotland Transport Partnership was developed with proper regard to the 14 elements of the Keeper’s statutory Model Records Management Plan (the Model Plan) under section 8(3) of the Act, and whether in this respect it complies with it and the specific requirements of the Act.
The RMP was assessed by the Public Records (Scotland) Act Assessment Team on behalf of the Keeper. Assessors used the checklist elements listed in section 5, to establish whether the South East of Scotland Transport Partnership’s RMP was developed with proper regard to the elements of the Model Plan and is compliant with the Act. The assessment also considered whether there was sufficient supporting evidence of such compliance.
The outcome of the assessment and the Keeper’s decision on whether the RMP of the South East of Scotland Transport Partnership complies with the Act can be found under section 7 of this report with relevant recommendations. The full report can be viewed below.
