The Scottish Police Services Authority (SPSA) is planning a new national information and communications technology (ICT) solution in a contract valued at between £40 million and £80 million.

The contract will be used by the Scottish police service for an initial six-year period with the option to extend up to a further six years. It is expected to have around 25,000 users.

This procurement forms part of the national Information Management (IM) programme. A tender notice in the Official Journal of the European Union says that it is needed “for the recording, management and analysis of information which aligns to and supports the Scottish police service’s national model of common end to end policing processes and minimises data management inefficiencies”.

The procurement is likely to include software, licences, specialist hardware, integration tools and services, business change activities, implementation services, reporting capabilities, data management activities and support.

Functionality will encompass crime and case reporting, property (productions and lost and found), missing persons, vulnerable persons, and core elements of party, object, location and event (POLE) data. This could also be extended to include business modules in areas such as custody and licensing.

The new ICT solution will be hosted on the Scottish police service national technology infrastructure.
