e-Health Commissioning is a process to put in place a written agreement for the performance of a specific piece of work.
The resultant agreement is known as a commission, which defines the scope, parameters, approach, budget, financial tolerances, organisation involvement and any other relevant matters associated with the undertaking of the specific piece of work. The commission forms the ‘contract’ between the sponsoring organisation and the organisation who will lead the work.
The e-Health Commissioning process is applicable when the work relates to some form of IT enablement of the health service provision in Scotland. The process can be used to form an agreement on a wide range of work, for example:
- undertaking an investigation
- creating a scoping report;
- developing a business case;
- developing user training material;
- implementing a solution;

If the Commission is deemed to be in a suitable state (all sections completed with pertinent information) the PMO will forward the Commission to the eHealth Programme Executive Team (PET) for review, assessment, approval/rejection and resubmission.
