II.2.4)
Description of the procurement:
The Metropolitan Police Service (the Authority) is the largest police force in the UK. In the current challenging economic climate the organisation has achieved significant progress and change; delivering cost reductions and improved value for money, whilst continuing to provide an exemplary service to Londoners' and visitors to London.

The key objectives of the Authority are to cut crime and increase public confidence whilst reducing costs and therefore they continue to look for more innovative ways to help meet the targets.

As the strategy continues to evolve, and the desire for delivering “more for less” remains, KBR is seeking to engage with the market to explore options for delivering the most appropriate service for the most competitive market cost, whilst ensuring fairness and transparency throughout.

The purpose of this prior information notice (PIN) is to engage the market in preparation for the tendering of the Supply of Mail Screening Services.

Interested suppliers will be invited to participate in a market engagement exercise that aims to provide the MPS with an innovative and potentially alternative solution that will enhance the delivery of these services across the estate, reduce costs and provide value for money.

The requirement for Mail Screening is:

— Provide secure premises and process for the security X-ray, chemical, biological, canine and radiological pre-screening of mail packets and letters addressed to specified sites within the MPS (currently 13 sites within the Greater London area).

— The location of the screening service shall be remote from the MPS estate.

— Provide MPS/Counter Terrorism Check (NPPV Level 2/CTC) level security cleared staff (screening and logistics staff).

— Deliver screening Level 3 as specified in ‘PAS 97:2015 Mail Screening and Security. Specification’.

— All screened mail must be kept secure until it is delivered to the MPS specified sites.

— Deliver and track screened mail to specified MPS sites to meet specified delivery timescales for standard and signature mail items.
