On the 27 June from 14:00 - 15:30 techUK is delighted to be hosting this market engagement event with the National Communications Data Service (NCDS) and Data Communications Capability Unit (DCCU) teams, who sit within the Homeland Security Group department of the Home Office.

The Home Office are looking to engage interested parties ahead of the procurement(s) for the Next Generation Contracts (NGC) project and are conducting a Market Engagement exercise to explore market capability and appetite, and to help inform a Delivery Model Assessment with the view to conduct a future procurement(s). The project is NCDS led and centred around both NCDS and DCCU requirements, with the intention of including the wider Communications Data and Lawful Intercept (CDLI) Partnership requirements in scope for the future.

This is the first stage of Market Engagement for this exciting opportunity, during which the Home Office are keen to work closely with the market to help shape requirements and ensure that the best commercial arrangements are implemented to support Public Safety in innovative ways, prior to formally engaging under a competitive tender process.
