Non-confidential facts and advice to the Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime (DMPC)
1. Introduction and background
1.1. The implementation of a revised Solution Delivery Model is a component of the Digital Policing Transformation Programme and a key enabler of the One Met Model. The Digital Policing Target Operating Model (DP TOM) and the revised Solution Delivery Model have been designed to deliver improved technology solutions and reduce operating costs.
1.2. The DP TOM also identified the need for a revised delivery structure for business applications. This paper is seeking to implement part of that delivery structure by establishing the Solution Provider Framework for the provision of IT services such as software development, consulting and support.
2. Issues for consideration
2.1. See the Part 2 for details.
3. Financial Comments
3.1 There are ‘one off’ project and procurement costs incurred in setting up the Solution Provider Framework. The costs are part of the funding proposal submitted in the Final Business Case, which was approved in March 2016. This decision is for the award of a framework arrangement. Call offs from the framework incurring cost will be via the usual MOPAC/MPS governance routes, as a result no further funding is being requested in this paper.
3.2 See the Part 2 for further details.
