If the Validation Team finds that the uploaded evidence you uploaded covers an answer option that was not selected by you then a 'declaration gap' will be raised to support you and make you aware of this.


This change has been introduced to support you when you have underrepresented your evidence and missed an opportunity to secure extra marks within the SAQ 5.0.
To receive the marks for the originally unticked answers, you will need to take action and update your SAQ based on the received 'declaration gap'. To do this, you will need to update your SAQ 5.0 and select the necessary answer option(s).


To view your 'Declaration gaps', follow the below steps:

1. Sign in to your account on the SUPPLIERASSURANCE platform
2. Use the search box in your dashboard to locate the existing SAQ 5.0 by searching with location details
3. Select 'View' and you will be taken to the SAQ results/answer page
4. Scroll further down and you will be able to view your 'Declaration gaps' within the red notification box
5. To review the information in more detail for each 'Declaration gap', you can select each reference separately
6. To 'Update' your results and change your evidences, select 'Update SAQ' to improve your score
7. Select the areas found within your evidences following the 'Declaration gap' information and progress through the questions
8. Submit your SAQ 5.0 for validation so that your new responses can be validated and improve your score
