From time to time, the Commissioner may require access to goods and services to enable her to fulfil her duties.  As a public official, the Commissioner has a duty to ensure value for money for the purchase of these goods and services.

The Commissioner's Procurement Policy sets out the approach to procurement which the Commissioner observes, including obligations under procurement legislation.  The procedure sets out how the Commissioner will procure goods and services, how goods and services are specified, how the Commissioner's office assesses suppliers, evaluates bids and awards contracts.  The policy also covers payment of suppliers, and contract performance management. 

Prospective contractors should also read "Contracting with the Scottish Information Commissioner" which sets out some information about the implications of entering into a contract with the Commissioner.
