Under the legislation there is a requirement to publish the contracts. In some circumstances limited redactions will be made to contracts before they are published in order to comply with existing law, to protect commercial interests and for the protection of national security. We are therefore in the process of consulting with existing contractors on whether any such information requires redacting prior to publication.
For all future contracts we have included in the tender documentation the requirement for contractors to request any information they require redacting at contract award stage thus enabling us to publish new contracts immediately after award.
