Crime duty tender documents now published

The LAA have now posted the following documents on their crime tenders page:

The e-tendering portal is now open and any questions must be submitted by noon on 15th December. FAQs will be published on 22nd December. The tender closes on 29th January, but outcomes will not be made known until June 2015, leaving successful bidders less than three months – over the summer – to make the necessary changes to their businesses by the start date of 1st October. There must be serious doubts as to whether this is realistic.

This is the indicative timetable:

  • Procurement process opens and available via the LAA’s eTendering portal 27 November 2014
  • Final date to submit questions about this procurement process 12 noon on 15 December 2015
  • Final ‘Frequently Asked Questions’ to be published 22 December 2015
  • Deadline for submission of Tenders 12 noon on 29 January 2015
  • Notification of outcome of Duty Provider Contract Tenders June 2015
  • Contract execution and Contract Start Date June 2015
  • Mobilisation period June to September 2015
  • Service Commencement Date 1 October 2015
