Potential 10-year deal will be open to all police and fire services and will feature up to 20 suppliers of back-office technology

Suppliers that could help the police and fire services migrate Oracle environments to the cloud are being sought for a new £500m framework.

Bidding is now open for the contract, which will ultimately feature up to 20 suppliers of enterprise resource planning and other back-office software. The procurement process is being led by the Police and Crime Commissioner for West Yorkshire, but the framework will be open to every police force and fire and rescue service in the UK.

The contract notice specifies that the chosen suppliers will certainly include those that offer “options for existing Oracle ERP-related systems to be migrated to cloud services”.

The publication of the tender comes as West Yorkshire Police begins rolling out “a far-reaching programme to transform its back office”. As part of this, it requires “a professional supplier to provide an off-the-shelf ERP solution”.

“Policing in the UK faces a series of challenges as it seeks to modernise, become more efficient, and make the most of technology and innovation to respond to current and future demands,” the contract notice said. 

It added: “A key driver of this transformation programme will be the rationalisation of the IT systems that support this back-office service provision. These are significant contributors to this improvement agenda, which aims to create as much self-service and business process automation as possible.”

The framework will be awarded for an initial six-year term, with the option of four additional one-year extensions. The estimated worth of the deal is £500m.

Bidding is open until midday on 27 July.
