The following organisations currently hold Merlin accreditation
As part of the DWP Commissioning approach, and in the interests of developing and supporting healthy, high performing supply chains, organisations directly contracted to DWP (ie. those who might be classed as Prime Contractors) are required to ensure that all of their sub-contractual relationships adhere to the DWP Code of Conduct.
Such prime contractors are expected to ensure adherence to the Code of Conduct through application of the Merlin Standard and, accordingly, are required to gain accreditation. An organisation which has been successfully accredited to the Merlin Standard is one that is able to demonstrate such adherence. An accredited organisation which is found to have subsequently and significantly failed to adhere to the Code of Conduct might have their accreditation revoked.
