Commissioned & contract services
We publish our upcoming opportunities through the Blue Light portal, a database managed by South West Police Procurement Department – SWPPD (Devon & Cornwall / Dorset / Wiltshire & Gloucestershire) who act on our behalf.
When contract and commissioned service opportunities go live, we will release information in advance including an identification notice (PIN).
You can access the Blue Light Portal here.
How we work
We manage a fair and robust commissioning process and our approach reflects the social value act 2012 by ’securing wider social, economic and environmental benefits through local provision’. We are keen to identify gaps in service provision, to help deliver the best service possible and pride ourselves on providing specifications that are realistic, deliverable and attractive.
We welcome consortiums and encourage partnership working so that providers can share expertise, capabilities and development costs.
The Commissioner’s Fund
Here in Gloucestershire, PCC Martin Surl allocates 1% of the overall policing budget to the Commissioner’s Fund, which supports county-based projects that deliver one or more of our priorities. Our aim is to work directly with communities to make Gloucestershire safer.
