Working with the Commissioner

Working with the Scottish Information Commissioner

The Commissioner employs a team of staff based in the office in St Andrews. Staff support the Commissioner across the range of statutory functions: from enforcing and promoting freedom of information to fulfilling the duties of an Accountable Officer.

From time to time the Commissioner procures specialist services as required.

The Commissioner publishes details of all job opportunities and invitations to tender on this website.

Contracts and procurement

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