The Department has a central contracts register database. All Senior Civil Servants within the Department log declarations of interests, including those involved in the procurement of contracts and have a contractual delegation authorising them to sign and execute contracts on behalf of the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, whilst abiding by the Department’s financial controls framework and procurement policy. All staff within the Department are required to complete a training module on data protection.
