As part of this contract notice the following documents can be accessed at: https://www.contractsfinder.service.gov.uk/Notice/f52a87ed-b778-4463-84f7-9df74fe3ba22

1) contract notice transparency information for the agreement;

2) contract notice authorised customer list;

3) rights reserved for CCS Framework.

CCS considers that the transfer of undertakings (protection of employment) Regulations 2006 (TUPE) will not apply at framework level. We encourage you to take your own advice on whether TUPE is likely to apply, in particular circumstances of the call-off contract, and to carry out due diligence accordingly.

On 2.4.2014 the Government introduced its Government Security Classifications (GSC) classification scheme which replaced the 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. The link below to the Gov.uk website provides information on the GSC: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/government-security-classifications
