The Scottish Government has launched a national information management programme for its police service. The programme will develop a national model of common policing processes and provide a scalable solution for recording, management and analysis through integration with other police ICT systems.
Information management procurement will focus on the acquisition of a national core ICT solution with the functionality to support the new business model in a scalable package.
A key feature of the ICT solution will be the capability to integrate with existing and future national police ICT systems through a flexible and agile approach.
The procurement exercise may include some or all of the following: software components, software licences, specialist hardware, integration and implementation services, business change activities, data management activities and lifetime management.
The Scottish Police Services Authority (SPSA) is acting on its own behalf and as agent for the eight Scottish police forces.
