Seven vendors named on Met’s digital solution provider framework

Framework promises around 10 projects each year, with average of 16 active at any given time; SME opportunities likely to be available for subcontractors


The Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) has named seven suppliers on a solution provider framework which it hopes will provide it with end-to-end digital solutions over the next four years.

The framework, which has a maximum estimated contract value of £350m, was established to allow the Met to procure digital solutions and bridge the gap between government frameworks such as G-Cloud and “lengthier, higher value, more complex procurements which would require the formal OJEU process.”

The framework is likely to be used to commission around 10 projects each year. two of these projects are expected to be large in scope, with four medium and four small.  An average of 16 projects are expected to be active at any given time.

The services which the London Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime (MOPAC) expects to be covered by the framework include project management, solution proposals, detailed solution design, build and development, business and technical analysis, environment management and 3rd line support.

The companies named to the framework from 15 tenders received include Accenture, BAE Systems Applied Intelligence, Capita Secure Information Systems, IBM UK, Informed Solutions, Leidos Innovations, and SCISYS UK. The size of the companies named appears to imply that any opportunities for SMEs are likely to be as subcontractors.

MOPAC was planning to establish that the framework can also be used by other UK police services, including the Offices of Police and Crime Commissioners (PCCs) and the Greater London Authority.
