Tech Procurement in Policing: Market Insight Briefing Round Up

On 23 June 2022 techUK held a Market Insight Briefing with the Police Digital Service (PDS), Blue Light Commercial (BLC) and members, Tussell.

We welcomed over 90 attendees to this session across suppliers and policing for data and insights into tech procurement by policing bodies. Tussell presented how policing spending has changed overtime, which frameworks are being utilised and the value of contracts awarded. PDS discussed their work to deliver the ambitions under the National Digital Policing Strategy, with BLC covering how they work with forces and suppliers and how they are raising capability across their members.

Speakers included:

  • Dave Edwards, Head of Commercial, Police Digital Service
  • Gus Tugendhat, Founder, Tussell
