The London Borough of Barnet is looking to undertake some soft market testing activity for the potential provision of CCTV services.
Background
The review of CCTV is a key component of the Council’s ‘Safer Communities’ project. The project forms part of the Council’s “One Barnet” programme, which has adopted the following principles as its strategic basis for making future decisions:
– A new relationship with citizens
– A one public sector approach
– A relentless drive for efficiency
This Council-wide programme is assessing a range of options for the future delivery of services, including seeking to identify and consider which could be improved, and have their operating costs reduced, by finding alternative provision in the market place.
CCTV makes an important contribution towards delivering Barnet’s Safer Communities Strategy, by helping the Council and Police to tackle priority crime types such as Anti Social Behaviour, violence, theft, and by making a significant impact on residents’ perception of safety. However, it is recognised that the CCTV system in Barnet is out of date, expensive, and could be more effective.
A review was commissioned to help determine how the Council can achieve a CCTV system that is fit for purpose, supports the Council and partner agencies to meet their strategic objectives and provides good value for money. Delivering the improvements required to the technical platform requires significant investment, and this needs to be balanced with ensuring an effective monitoring service which provides adequate assurance to partners and residents. Ultimately, the aims of this project are to:
– Deliver better outcomes for the residents of Barnet, through prevention, and supporting the detection or enforcement of crime and anti-social behaviour
– Raise performance through third party and / or business innovation
– Deliver efficiencies through economies of scale and service transformation
– Generate additional income by optimising current fee earning services and by identifying new traded services opportunities
– Provide flexibility and low marginal cost of deployment of new camera schemes on demand or movement of existing schemes to other locations where demand changes
– Provide a modernised transmission and monitoring capability that can record evidence to a quality good enough for courts
Next Steps
Please take time to consider the attached questionnaire, and submit your completed returns via the ‘Supply4London’ portal by 17:00 on Monday 7th January 2013.
Selected organisations will be invited to participate in a soft market testing interview on Thursday 17th January 2013, at which you will be afforded the opportunity to elaborate on your responses and seek further clarification of the Council’s requirements, and questioned on the relevant experiences and suitability of your organisation.
Due to the number of organisations we intend to involve at this stage, a specific slot will be allocated to your organisation in due course. GO Reference: GO-20121221-PRO-4471318
