Thames Valley Police has begun the procurement for a range of services under the new South East Police Shared Network Services Agreement (SEPSNSA).

The four forces – Thames Valley, Hampshire, Surrey and Sussex – are looking to consolidate their existing voice and data networks on a shared platform in a move towards the provision of a regional network for police forces that will connect to the national Public Services Network (PSN).

The tender in the Official Journal of the European Union is for a framework contract to supply voice and data network services. It will run for five years with options to extend for a further five and is valued at between £20 million and £90 million.

The list of services includes local and wide area networks, voice, unified communications, video, hosting, cabling and consultancy.

Scottish Procurement has published a tender in the Official Journal of the European Union for IT hardware and associated services, worth between £80 million and £100 million. The contract – for 18 months with an extension option of up to two years – includes PCs, workstations, netbooks, laptops and thin client technology.

The contract will be used by a number of public sector organisations including central and local government, non-departmental public bodies and police and fire authorities.
