London to get another £60m of CCTV surveillance

Transport, cops, boroughs all eyeing eyeing kit

Transport for London (TfL) has invited companies to join a framework agreement worth up to £60m for the supply of CCTV equipment to a range of public sector organisations in the capital and beyond.

A notice in the Official Journal of the European Union says that the equipment will be supplied to TfL and the other Greater London Authority bodies, including the Metropolitan Police. London boroughs, Network Rail, train operating companies, the Highways Agency and the Ministry of Justice will also be able to use the framework.

The deal, valued at between £20m and £60m, will be divided into six lots covering camera lenses; camera fixings and fixtures; control equipment; cable and accessories; cabinets and storage; and monitors and fixtures.

Although the four-year contract will include the provision of warranties, it will not include installation or the ongoing maintenance of equipment.

"The value reflects the importance of CCTV to the capital, for both emergency services and transport operators, but also the procurement power of TfL to bring these numerous bodies together," said Josh Hewer, transport analyst at Kable.
