Police Sector G Cloud expenditure

Wednesday 6th January 2016

Police spend analysis through the G Cloud framework is available. The Report covers the Police Forces of England and Wales, and includes the spending of the National Crime Agency. The threat of significant cuts was not carried out in the 2015 spending review although forces have been warned by the Home Secretary that efficiency savings are still expected - Cloud may just be the way forward. Police forces are not generally slow to adopt new technology, but have not been utilizing the Digital Marketplace as a procurement vehicle as much as perhaps they could have done given the estimated £1bn ICT spend. As the Police ICT Company becomes more influential in the sector perhaps 2016 will become the year it does.
