Capgemini wins £600 million contract with Met Police

The company will help digitally transform the police’s procurement programme

Police contract

The Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) has awarded a strategic IT infrastructure contract to services provider Capgemini, with the aim of improving the user experience of its internal platforms.

The contract is said to be worth £600 million and will run for five years, with the option to extend for an additional two years if needed.

The MPS is looking to improve its IT infrastructure services within the Pegasus Programme, a digital policing programme to procure new key IT suppliers for the police.

Capgemini will be working on moving the MPS away from its multi-supplier “Towers” model, essentially separated categories of services that led to unnecessary fragmentation.

The bulk of the contract work will involve amalgamating services such as the service desk, network services, end user services, cyber security services, and others under a single umbrella.

“We are delighted to have been chosen as the strategic infrastructure services provider for MPS, one of the world’s leading police forces and one of the largest public sector organisations in the UK,” said Nive Bhagat, CEO of Cloud Infrastructure Services at Capgemini.

Capgemini has a history of providing services to the police, including helping it to transform its budget control back in 2008. The contract was signed with the London’s Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime who have used Capgemini in the past in projects involving email services or agile scrum teams.

Angus McCallum, chief digital and technology officer at the Metropolitan Police, said: “Capgemini will help us continue to develop the next stage in our journey towards Met’s digital policing vision.

“Capgemini was chosen as our infrastructure partner based on the strong capabilities demonstrated throughout the bid process. We look forward to working closely with Capgemini in the delivery of critical infrastructure services over the coming years."

Last year, Capgemini signed a three-year partnership with Barts Health NHS Trust to modernise its ICT estate.
