South-East police forces are tendering a framework agreement worth up to £20 million over two years for the provision of data security services.
The Police and Crime Commissioner for Surrey, through a joint procurement service, is tendering for the work.
Police forces within the South East Regional Information Security Management Group, including the British Transport Police, Civil Nuclear Constabulary, Essex Police, Hampshire Police, Hertfordshire Police, Kent Police, Metropolitan Police, Surrey Police, Sussex Police and Thames Valley Police, will be covered by the framework agreement.
The work, which is estimated to be worth between £10 million and £20 million, may be extended by a further two years after the initial two-year period.
The framework covers four lots, including penetration testing and an annual IT health check, CESG government security standard consultancy, RMADS (risk management accreditation document sets) restricted access data security consultancy, and privacy impact assessments.
