About the work

Why the work is being done
The Home Office and the NPCC Digital Policing Programme are currently implementing a number of National Law Enforcement initiatives. These have been mapped onto an application landscape using a VMOST approach, together with a joined-up critical milestone timing plan. This work must be taken forward to enable a more effective portfolio management approach, and ensure that the initiatives are operating in a complementary manner (identifying any overlaps or gaps), understand any critical dependencies and map the critical milestones so that the Police Forces are able to ensure their business readiness.
Problem to be solved
Maintaining engagement with the various programme teams.
On boarding of further projects that come into scope
Collection and maintenance of project data including planning, risk and Dependency and critical milestone identification
Support and mange systems for reporting and governance.
Benefits management
Implementation and improvement of a programme view
Continually refresh and keep current all portfolio data
There is a requirement to prepare a connected and overarching view of the vision of these programmes in totality every 6 months within this parliament, so as to provide a clear picture of the overall agenda for the digital transformation.

Questions asked by suppliers

1. Is the requirement for independence of major projects confined to law enforcement projects?
Suppliers will acknowledge that this Call-Off Agreement is one of a number of agreements across the law enforcement area and that the Customer requires that no single supplier can perform both a client side management role and a delivery role in this space, unless expressly permitted by the Home Office. For the avoidance of doubt, the provision of client side management and delivery roles across different programmes and areas within the Home Office will be permissible.
2. Did you have any external suppliers supporting the initial Landscape Mapping programme and will they be eligible to bid for this work?
The existing work has been supported by an external supplier and has reached a point at which it can be readily handed on. The supplier for that initial stage of the work will be eligible to bid on this requirement.
3. Can you provide the outputs of the initial Landscape Mapping programme or a hold a briefing on the work carried out to date?
At this stage we are only seeking expressions of interest and may subsequently request evidence of how bidders meet the essential and “nice to have” criteria. Once bidders have been selected, the successful bidders will be issued with a full request for proposal which will contain the relevant documents and further information about the work itself. If further briefing or questions sessions are deemed helpful they will be notified at that stage.

5. Nice-to-have skills and experience point 2: "Familiarity with Law Enforcement technology and in ..." Please can you clarify if there is a continuation of this point - are there additional areas of experience requested?
The line should read:

• Familiarity with law enforcement technology and infrastructure.
6. (a) What is the makeup of the team that Landscape Mapping partners would be working with? (b) What other programmes are impacted by this work or shaped as a result? (c) How many projects/ programmes are currently in the portfolio? How many are in the pipeline? (d) Which governance do existing initiatives interact with? (e) Who has developed the initial mapping and are they invited to bid for this stage of the work? (f) How long has the initial work taken and with what level of resources? (g) May suppliers have sight of the initial mapping undertaken prior to award.
Please see the answer to question 3. More detailed information will be shared at the RfP stage of the process after short listing.
