Lists and copies of contracts

The Specified Information Order places on Police and Crime Commissioners and Chief Constables new publication requirements:

  • A list of contracts with a value less than £10,000 to which the West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner is party, including the value of the contract, the identity of every other party, and the purpose of the contract (to be published quarterly) 
  • A list of contracts with a value less than £10,000 to which the Chief Constable of West Midlands Police is party including the value of the contract, the identity of every other party, and the purpose of the contract (to be published quarterly)
  • A copy of each contract with a value exceeding £10,000 to which the West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner is party (to be published as soon as practicable)
  • A copy of each contract with a value exceeding £10,000 to which the Chief Constable of West Midlands Police is party (to be published as soon as practicable)

Where the contract value exceeds £25,000, data is available from the Bluelight Emergency Services Tendering website.

Once on the Bluelight website:

  • Click "Awarded Contracts" in the box on the left headed "Supplier Area"
  • This will take you to a page headed "Current Contracts Visible For Freedom Of Information"
  • Use the "Organisation" drop down menu to select "West Midlands Police"
  • Use the "Categories" and "Sub-Categories" drop down menus to narrow your search (optional)
  • Click "Search"

Contracts with a value of less than £25,000 are not published on Bluelight.  Instead, this data will be published in a quarterly spreadsheet.
