Capita awarded £160m UK Metropolitan Police Service radio service framework

Capita’s secure information solutions business has entered into a four year framework agreement with the Metropolitan Police Service for the supply, delivery and support of radio managed services and peripherals for use under the Airwave Radio Service.

The multi-supplier framework, which has an estimated value of up to £160m, is being supported by the Metropolitan Police Service and is open for use by public sector bodies using the Airwave service via the Bluelight portal.

The framework allows customers to benefit from the convenience, choice and value for money derived from purchasing goods and services through a single, pre-competed national framework.

The agreement, which was awarded following a competitive tender process, recognises Capita’s market leading position in radio managed services provision to the police service, ambulance service, Ministry of Defence and other central Government departments.

Craig Rodgerson, Chief Executive Officer of Capita’s secure information solutions business said: ‘Capita is delighted to be able to offer a new, affordable and comprehensive range of radio managed services to our customers through this new framework.

‘Our regional shared service model means that even much smaller organisations on tight budgets can now take advantage of our services, which are tailor-made to meet each individual customer’s specific requirements.’
