II.1.5)Short description of the contract or purchase(s)
The NRM was set up in 2009, as part of the UK’s implementation of ECAT. Its primary purpose is to provide a framework to help statutory and non-statutory partners identify and support potential victims of trafficking. It is coordinated by the UK Human Trafficking Centre (UKHTC) in the National Crime Agency. Teams of designated experts, ‘Competent Authorities’ (CA), in UKHTC and UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) make decisions on trafficking referrals.
The NRM process is currently undergoing a wide-ranging review aimed at focusing on the mechanics of the NRM, access to support services and entitlements for victims. As part of the review, recommendations that may enhance or vary the Services may be made. Should these recommendations be approved by the Authority they will require Home Office Policy Changes.
