MoJ shops for ICT provider for Her Majesty's prisons

3-year deal to give services to crim-managers

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

The Ministry of Justice (MoJ) is looking for a provider of ICT services for the National Offender Management Service (Noms), as part of a transition towards using its Future ICT Sourcing (Fits) model.

It has published a tender for a three-year deal worth up to £300m to provide services for hardware, software and networks. It is aiming to award the contract next year to provide an interim solution until a transition to Fits by 2015, although there is a provision for two possible extensions of a year each.

The existing ICT infrastructure of Noms covers its headquarters and 131 prisons and includes desktops, networks, telephony and application services.

Fits involves the implementation of a service tower model for delivering infrastructure, applications, services and communications across the whole of the MoJ, replacing a range of programmes. The relevant contracts will be tendered separately.
