II.2.3)Place of performance

NUTS code: UKI
NUTS code: UK

II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

The Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) contracts are currently being delivered as a multi supplier ‘Towers Model’. The MPS is seeking an aggregated model, moving from 6 towers to a 2 tower model with the first 5 towers coming together plus some additional services to make up the infrastructure services tower at a high level consisting of the following services:

— service desk,

— service management (which includes integration of other Suppliers services across the ecosystem),

— hosting services (including datacentre services),

— network services,

— end user services,

— cyber security services and security operations center (SOC),

— mobile voice and data,

— managed print.

The MPS’s procurement model is a 2 tower model that will comprise of an infrastructure provider, with embedded service management and integration services, and a separate applications tower. The authority will be looking to procure a ‘run and maintain’ contract with no pre-planned transformation built into the contract but with the opportunity to use the 2 towers to deliver change on the back of excellent delivery.

The estimated value range (including change) is between 250 000 000 GBP-600 000 000 GBP over 5 years with options to extend by 2 separate periods of one (1) year for ‘Run and Maintain’ services. Assets are predominantly owned by the MPS and there will be a refresh cycle over the contract term.

The authority has a strong preference for appointing a different supplier to each of the infrastructure and applications towers, to ensure independence between the 2 roles as the Infrastructure supplier will be managing the applications supplier to some extent.

The Metropolitan Police Service wishes to invite ICT suppliers to participate in this opportunity for the delivery of infrastructure services.
