If the organisation does not yet have the GDPR agreement in place please can you provide me with the following information:

  2. When do you plan to go out to market for GDPR.

  3. Who within the organisation will be responsible for this agreement?

  4. Any other notes the organisation can provide in relation to the future procurement of compliance services.


In response to your questions, I can confirm that the Scottish Government has no supplier agreement in place relating to General Data Protection Regulation(GDPR) compliance and therefore does not hold the information you are seeking.

The Scottish Government are managing compliance with the GDPR in-house and have no plans to procure GDPR compliance services.
