Other than minor or bespoke purchases, the Scotland Office does not undertake direct procurement or tendering projects. It utilises existing service contracts between suppliers and the Scottish Government or the Ministry of Justice. The only significant contract issued directly by the Scotland Office is with the Royal Mail in relation to candidates' free mailings of election materials for the Scottish Parliament elections. The price paid by the Scotland Office depends upon the nature and extent of the services provided.
