Dear Colleague,


January’s Crown Commercial Services Procurement News referred to Procurement Policy Note 03/17: Changes to Data Protection Legislation & General Data Protection Regulation published on the CCS website.

Crown Commercial Services have issued the following:

“It has come to our attention that there has been an error in the clause included in PPN 03/17.

This has now been addressed and the amended PPN is now online at:


We have corrected clause 1.13 to reinstate the control of the Customer (if you view the ‘full page history’ from the link you can see the details of all changes).

Please flag this important change with any comms channels you have used to share the PPN and accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused.
