2.2

Description of the goods or services required

The Scottish Prison Service (SPS) is an Agency of the Scottish Government Justice Department and currently operates sites across Scotland. In addition to the prison establishments, the SPS also operates a college, a central store and an administrative headquarters building. The SPS Sites range from Inverness & Peterhead in the north to Dumfries in the south. The SPS is currently embarking on a long-term development plan for its estate and this may mean that during the life of this contract the SPS may add or remove prisons during the Contract Term. Further information and Site location is available from our website: www.sps.gov.uk.

The SPS is part of the national cross justice video conferencing project and requires Video Conferencing facilities to allow multi-disciplinary meetings to take place at a number of prisons. Video Conferencing facilities are currently operational in a number of SPS establishments and the new equipment is to replace equipment at the end of its operational life or to provide additional facilities to support projects to enable video conferencing between SPS, Courts and with solicitors.

The SPS have identified the Sites requiring new Equipment; details are shown in Table 1 of Schedule C. This Contract would facilitate any further adhoc requirements for video conferencing of a similar specification. The SPS will not guarantee annual volumes for individual Goods and Services throughout its Sites. Similarly, there will be no guarantee of minimum order quantities or values.

The intention of this invitation to tender is to award a Contract for a 1 year term with the option to extend for a further year for the provision and maintenance of new Video Conferencing Equipment only.
