SAQ 5.0 has been designed to be a modular assessment, where different minimum requirements are defined for different industries. These minimum requirements are referred to as 'Minimum Scope' and they will appear as questions that are mandatory for you to answer.


The SAQ 5.0 questionnaire will display the 'Minimum Scope' questions (i.e. mandatory questions) for the selected industry sector of each supplier. It will also show all the other questions (those outside of the Minimum Scope) which will be optional for suppliers to answer. Even though Suppliers will not be obliged to answer these questions, they will still contribute to their final/total SAQ score.

The Minimum Scope questions are ticked by default, cannot be unselected and will contribute to your Minimum Scope Rating.
