Security Classifications: sample advert and invitation to tender

Example text that government procurers can include in adverts and invitations to tender before the new government classification scheme comes into force on 2 April 2014.



The new Security Classification scheme comes into force on 2 April 2014 and describes how the government will classify information assets to make sure they’re appropriately protected. The scheme applies to all information that government collects, stores, processes, generates or shares to deliver services and conduct business.

Procurers should draw the forthcoming changes to bidders’ attention, as these will need to be recognised and included in the bidding process.
