A pair of police forces are looking for somebody competent to build them a new joint intranet, as theirs aren’t very good.
Sussex Police and Surrey Police really don’t think a great deal about their current intranets. Sussex describes theirs as ‘unstable, cannot be accessed effectively through mobile devices and is poor at delivering internal communications,’ while Surrey says theirs sits on a ‘on a poor implementation of Sharepoint’ and has ‘architectural issues’.
They’ve now decided to team up and create a joint shared intranet, and have earmarked £150,000 for the work.
According to the forces, the new system will ‘provide a single point of reference for applications, information and internal communications’, and is envisaged to take two years to compele.
If you think you or your firm is up to the task, you’d better hurry up – bids need to be in by 6 September, which is, I think, two days away.
