UK's national Airwave terminal procurement framework awarded to Motorola and Sepura

It has to be said

Any centrally negotiated contracts will flounder for the same reasons at the Police ICT Company as for its ill-fated predecessors of NPIA and PITO.

The 43 county forces will simply wait to the supplier's quarter end/year end and then negotiate a price which uses the central contract as the starting point for price. Commission driven salespeeps will always be happy to do a deal based on guaranteed units with approved funding.

NB the HO wheeze which sold off Airwave was dodgy af. Don't ask me how I know!
