File PDF document From Code Compliance to Fair Purchasing Practices: Some Issues for Discussion
by Paul Roeland last modified 24-04-2013 18:57 — filed under: ,
Paper written for CCC Round Table on Purchasing Practices, May 2005. This paper discusses the main elements related to purchasing practices and their relation to the CCC’s campaign activities. It's based on experiences from the Play Fair campaign concerning purchasing practices. The paper concludes with questions for further discussion.

However, it is important to raise some questions about how far campaigners should go down this road.
