New security services solutions for the public sector

Our Security Services lot provides you with a single solution for all your security related needs.

The Framework has been designed in two sub lots to capture the requirements of a resource intensive guarding service and the separate requirement for technical security elements including electronic and physical security, which can be called off separately or bundled depending on your requirements.

Security Services:

Control of Access and Security Passes Management of Visitors and Passes
CCTV / Alarm Monitoring Reactive Guarding
Emergency Response Alarm Response Centres (ARC)

Technical Security:

Design, Supply, Installation and Maintenance

The solution offers:

  • Access to specialist security suppliers providing, compliant assessment of security risk, informing delivery of compliant design of security systems using registered members of a number of accreditation bodies
  • Access to professionally managed, high quality security and guarding
    services using approved contractors accredited by the Security Industry Authority (SIA)
  • Flexible and simplified access to specialist Security SME’s
  • Social value
  • Time and resource savings in the procurement process
  • Reduced consultancy and legal costs
  • Flexibility for the provision of a security risk assessment, design, supply and install – customers choose the route to market either as staged or as a single project

The introduction of security services is designed specifically for customers who may not have the in house ability to produce security risk assessments and are reliant in part on suppliers ‘designing’  security systems on their behalf. Therefore our security lot has been designed to focus on customer requirements for design and security risk assessments (aligned with the Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure guidance CPNI) with the additional mandated entry point for industry recognised accreditation (SIA) with regard to guarding services.
