Met to consolidate its IT contracts
The Metropolitan Police Authority plans to consolidate existing and new IT contracts into a single 10-year outsourcing deal worth at least £650m.
The deal will cover infrastructure services and support; desktop services; network services; new software under new contracts and within existing ones; fixed and mobile telephony services; crime reporting information systems; and associated hardware.
The Met's £125m Atos Origin network and desktop support contract covering more than 14,000 desktops is due for renewal this year, but the force will have to renegotiate other contracts to consolidate its services and support under one supplier.
Existing contracts include one with EDS for a crime reporting system; with Unisys for 999 services; and Damovo for telecoms.
