National Records of Scotland (NRS) is now planning for the next census in Scotland, due to take place in 2021. It will be conducted primarily online making the best use of technology and digital services. The census is a household survey of everyone in Scotland which currently takes place once every ten years.
As part of the commercial strategy development process for the next census NRS is seeking views and information from the market place regarding the commercial requirements. Any information provided by suppliers will be utilised in developing the procurement strategy and contract arrangements for the 2021 Census. Should you wish to find out more or participate in this request more detail is available on Public Contracts Scotland.
