EM services are currently used to facilitate the curfew of a subject given either a community order, court bail
order or released on licence (collectively referred to as 'Orders'). The scope of the new EM services will be
divided into four elements as follows.
I. Monitoring service including the processing centre, related hardware and software, and field operatives (Lot
II. Monitoring and mapping software applications (Lot 2);
III. Monitoring hardware (anklets etc.) and firmware and software; and
IV. Network (Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM)) (Lot 4).
This notice announces the award of three (3) of the originally advertised four (4) contracts for the provision of
the next generation of electronic monitoring (EM) services and supplies in England and Wales, being Lots 1, 2
and 4. The negotiated procedure with notice relating to lot 3 was terminated and the contract awarded through
another procedure, being announced through a separate contract award notice.
The successful monitoring service provider for lot (I) will be the service and system integrator. Working together
with the Authority, the service and system integrator has the responsibility for overseeing the successful
mobilisation of individual lot contracts. For the avoidance of doubt, contracts have been awarded directly by the
Authority, who was solely responsible for bidder selection. Preferred bidders were designated for all of the lots
prior to award of contracts. Negotiations were then concluded with all preferred bidders to establish a back-to back
service and system integration agreement, binding on all parties that contains the appropriate commercial
provisions supporting an end to end service to the Authority.
