The Metropolitan police authority has signed framework agreements for IT development services worth up to £214m.
The agreements signed with 18 IT services and consultancy firms – including Accenture, Fujitsu, Capgemini, Unisys, BT and LogicaCMG – will allow the authority to procure IT development lifecycle services, business change services and application development for London’s police force over the next four years.
The scope of the framework agreement also includes research and development, computer services, telecommunications, project management and business analysis services.
The total value of procurements under the framework deal is expected to fall between £95m and £214m.
The Met already has a £350m seven-year contract, signed in 2005, with a Capgemini-led consortium that also includes Unisys and BT for the provision of IT and telephony services.
The framework agreement could also see new business with the London police force for LogicaCMG, after November’s embarrassing disclosure that three laptops containing police payroll information had been stolen from Logica’s offices.
