The Ministry of Defence has an enduring requirement for the purchase and installation of up to two new CSI remote Cabins and the provision of maintenance and support for the CSI Cabins.

Design, procurement, installation and acceptance of COTS remote replacement Cabins, where the CSI terminals are hosted and act as the physical environment; for sites in the Northumberland and Norfolk regions.

The internal cabin equipment room must be designed to meet the UK Government's Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI) standard for a secure room designed to resist surreptitious attack.

Electrical interfaces are required such as primary power supply, alarm circuits (fire/Intruder detections system), and data networking connections. It must be able to support 13-amp sockets in addition to power supplies for the equipment, and emergency lighting is required.

The requirement will include maintenance and support for the CSI Cabins. The support will include but is not limited to:

i. Testing/Certification of the Cabins to ensure design integrity, security and electrical safety
ii. Preventive maintenance for the Cabins
iii. Provision of repair and emergency call-out service
iv. Provision of ad-hoc in-service support activities to the Cabin's external connections and interfaces.

It is expected that the Potential Provider shall have the capacity and capability to meet the Authority's timescale of installation and acceptance of the first Cabin by Aug/Sep 2021.

The advertised contract for the supply and support of the CSI Cabins will be for a period of 5 years. The project will include the procurement and support of one new replacement remote Cabin. Pending future requirements, a second Cabin may be required and will therefore be an Option in the potential contract, and subsequent support of this Cabin. The full scope of the Contract will be explained within the Invitation to Tender.
