The Ministry of Justice is seeking expressions of interest from suppliers for the provision of Key Compromise Protection Systems (RFID) to public sector prisons in England and Wales.
The purpose of this notice is to inform the market of a prospective contract opportunity in connection with the supply of Key Compromise Protection Systems.
Key Compromise Protection Systems are key tagging solutions that operate with gate sensors to sound an alarm when a key passes through for both pedestrian and vehicle users. Key tagging is typically used as a last line of defence.
This system is essential to the prison service as misplacement or loss of keys can cause security compromises as well as the large cost of replacement keys and locks. Suppliers must be Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM's) capable of supplying, installing and maintaining Key Compromise Protection Systems using both 'active' and/or 'passive' RFID technology. The next stage of the process is to request information that may be relevant to the MOJ's requirements and procurement strategy. Depending on the levels of interest this may be conducted by either supplier meetings and/or an engagement event or a prequalification questionnaire.
