POLICE ICT BUDGETS 2013.14 – FIGURES SHOW A SWING TO NETWORKS AND DATA MANAGEMENT
POLICE ICT investment will swing toward networks and records management in 2013.14, according to a new breakdown of ICT spends.
Airwave replacement spend will remain around the same as last year, with £4.8m identified. Call management shows a total of £1.79m, a 50% rise on the previous year.
However, identified network investment is up 47% to £6.7m and desktop infrastructure up 65% to £10m. The Enterprise Resource Management category is especially buoyant, up 91% to £8m and other records management applications up
74% to £7.9m.
The breakdown is published by Police Market Report, the specialist monthly newsletter, which reveals a 12% fall to £227m in ICT capital spend in England and Wales.
Unusually, the fall is due entirely to a 22% cut in Metropolitan Police ICT capital, down to £68.3m. Provincial force ICT investment will remain the same as last year at around £159m.
The Police Market Report spreadsheet, which examines spend data under more than 30 separate headings, is the first detailed look at budgets set by new Police and Crime Commissioners.
Specialist software applications are bearing most of the downturn. Mobile data applications, which last year had a £17m identified spend, falls to £14m this year and HR applications are down to £799k, a sign of the ERP bandwagon starting to roll.

January 2012 Police Market Report
English police forces may make the first steps towards PSN compliance in 2013 as around 25% of networks must be replaced or renewed this year.
study of network providers and contract expiry dates published in this month’s Police Market Report reveals contracts for at least 9 forces expire in 2013.
A few are already out to tender while the remainder are looking at specifications and options for change.
The study examined WAN/LAN and telephony contracts in 26 forces. The largest vendors for WAN provision and managed services were BT and Virgin; each with nine individual force contracts in place. KCOM followed with four separate forces.
The report comments “new deals means PSN will be closely examined as collaboration with local authorities moves further up the agenda. However, security is still major consideration. Separate, confidential networks are likely to continue to be used for secure links to the Police National Database and e-borders.”
