The eSourcing Portal will also be used by the Ministry of Justice to run Reverse Auctions.

3. GOVERNMENT SECURITY CLASSIFICATION
From 2.4.2014 the Government is introducing its new Government Security Classifications (GSC) classification scheme to replace the current Government Protective Marking Scheme (GPMS). A key aspect of this is the reduction in the number of security classifications used. All potential suppliers should make themselves aware of the changes as it may impact on this Requirement.
