Security contracts for tender
Security tenders can take on many shapes and forms, as the public and private sectors adapt to cover different risks in the market, and to keep both sites and people safe and secure. As such, there are hundreds of tender opportunities within the security sector.
Typical security services procured by local councils, the NHS, and housing associations etc. will cover:
- Manned guarding security services
- Car park security
- Event security
- Corporate security
- Cash collection services
- Keyholding services
- Cyber security
- Concierge services
- CCTV and fire alarms, and much more.
Public and private sector bodies will have many security contracts in place to manage day-to-day services like manned guarding for buildings or car park security, but also to mitigate future risks and threats such as large-scale events and terrorism. For large organisations, such as the NHS, services like cyber security are increasingly important as technology advances, and these contracts may cover a vast number of sites and potential threats.
It is also very common to see security and associated services integrated into broader facilities management contracts. Cleaning, waste management and grounds maintenance services may be procured alongside security services, under one total FM contract or framework agreement. This is common for contracts at sites such as hospitals, universities, and local authority buildings for either a total FM provider, or sector specialists if the framework agreement is split into lots.
