The Metropolitan Police has shortlisted consortia lead by EDS and Capgemini to run a major consolidated IT services contract for the capital’s law enforcement agency.
The Met aims to appoint a single core supplier to support its information, communication and technology (ICT) systems. This will streamline contract management, provide improved management reporting and cost data.
The new contracts will also allow for benchmarking of service costs against market rates to ensure that they remain competitive over the life of the contract, the Met said.
The contracts with our existing suppliers, including EDS, have been extended to ensure continuity of service as the Met completes its tender process, the Met said. It would not reveal the price of the consolidated contract.
