Description

This procurement relates to the supply, maintenance and repair for Type Approved Evidential Screening Devices (ESD) for preliminary breath tests (testing for the presence of alcohol).

Bidders should only apply for this opportunity where they can supply a Home Office ‘Type Approved’ ESD.

Section 6 of the Road Traffic Act 1988 provides police officers with the power to conduct preliminary breath tests to identify whether a person driving is likely to have excess alcohol in their body. This power allows officers to test those suspected of being involved in a collision, those suspected of committing a moving traffic offence and those suspected of having consumed alcohol or being under the influence of alcohol. Such a test will also therefore eliminate, at the earliest opportunity, those who are almost certainly not offending.

The Mayors Office for Policing and Crime (on behalf of the Metropolitan Police Service) is now looking for the supply of approx. 400 ESDs and the maintenance and repair of these during the term of the contract.

Interested suppliers should visit the Coupa e tendering system in order to apply for the opportunity:
