Met Police tenders for range of managed services to enable focus on ICT transformation
Force publishes details of four two-year services contracts as it plans transformation initiatives
London’s Metropolitan Police Service is looking for external suppliers to provide a range of underlying IT managed services so it can press on with transformation work.
Using the government’s Digital Marketplace, the force has issued four contract notices, each seeking a different managed-service offering. The services will, respectively, address the following technology areas: infrastructure architecture; enterprise architecture; security architecture; and information systems architecture.
In each case, the Met requires a supplier to provide “additional architecture resources”, so that it can focus on transformation initiatives.
- Government urges police to transform ‘for the digital age’
- Police Scotland invests in ‘cyber kiosks’ to extract data from mobile devices
- Technology must be embedded into frontline policing
“The Met Police is going through an extensive period of transformation,” the force said. “Much of this transformation is ICT focused. The Met has a number of projects and programmes where enterprise architects form a key part of the team. The aim of this contract is to deliver infrastructure architecture artefacts, so that the Met can continue to deliver its transformation programme.”
Although the chosen supplier will be compensated based on the “underlying day rates” set out by Skills Framework for the Information Age, some payment will be contingent on “delivery of outcomes”.
In all four cases, the Met is looking to award a two-year contract, with a planned start date of 18 June. Bidding is open until 27 April.
