This is a specific privacy notice on the collection and processing of personal data as part of public procurement process.
The personal data that we hold may be used for:

Information will be shared with our service users who receive services from suppliers, and the people who care for them, as far as this is necessary to allow service delivery.
Subject to contractual and other legal safeguards, we will share individuals' information with organisations commissioned to provide services to suppliers, such as electronic tendering systems and payment services.
We may publish, or release under the Freedom of Information Scotland Act 2002, actual contracts, deliverables provided under contracts, and information about compliance with contracts and performance under those contracts.
