Public Sector Network Tender Alert


Supply of Ballistic Shields

Forces require Ballistic Shields to be carried on Armed Response Vehicles in order to meet the risks identified within both National and Local threat level assessments via respective Strategic Threat & Risk Assessment's (STRA's). The role of Policing is to detect and prevent harm to the public and in order to do this, Police Forces deploy both general and specialist armed officers to combat threats. In conducting these roles, officers may be required to face armed assailants and thus require protection from ballistic threats such as crossbows, small arms, rifles, automatic rifles and shotguns. In addition to their personal ballistic armour (a separate requirement) officers may make use of portable ballistic shields. Accordingly, Forces require scalable protection, up to and including various combinations of BPL "Ballistic Protection Level" in the form of half and full shields in a modular option. This opportunity is a National Framework open to all Police Forces in the U.K including British Transport Police and Civil Nuclear Constabulary. This will be a single supplier framework. This opportunity is being run under accelerated open procedure due to current STRA. Please download the attached documents and review fully. The ITT provides all the information about the framework and the company questionnaire's to complete. The 'Conemp' Excel document contains all the technical data, user requirements and price. Bidders should follow the guidance within the ITT and the Guide tab of the Conemp. It should be noted that although the documents look complex, the sections for bidders to complete are clearly marked and straight forward.
