 2017-81611 Procurement Report for
Insurance Services

In 2013 The Police and Crime Commissioner entered into a three year contract with an option to extend for a further two years for the provision of Insurance services.

In 2016 a decision was made to extend the contract in line with the terms for a two year period, this decision was based on  the fact that the Force’s risk profile had not changed and therefore it was deemed that a market competition would not add value at that time. In 2017, the Insurance premiums increased by an average of 60% across the Casualty classes as a result of the Ogden ruling. The contract end date is 31st May 2018.

 Crown Commercial Services have an Insurance Services 11 Framework RM3731 which enables a compliant route to market. Using such a Framework reduces the procurement costs and also reduces the timescales in the tendering process as suppliers on the Framework are already commercially compliant. Lot 1 – Insurance and Associated Services was chosen and a mini competition carried out with 22 of the 26 suppliers within this Lot (4 suppliers did not provide cover for the categories required).

The mini-competition was split and suppliers were invited to bid for individual insurance categories or all insurance categories.

Three suppliers responded to the mini competition and submitted a bid.

The appendix to this decision record form contains full details of the procurement process and outcome.
