The Deputy might note that the Office of Government Procurement has a Multi Supplier Framework Agreement for the Provision of Professional Photography and Videography Services in place and my Department acquires photography services from this. The overall objective is to keep costs of this nature to a minimum and these services are only used when deemed necessary in the course of Departmental activity.
