Fire and Rescue services prepare for shared service agreement
Friday, August 17, 2012
Leicestershire, Derbyshire, and Nottinghamshire’s Fire and Rescue services are preparing to enter into a shared services agreement, after the success of a similar shared services project between Devon and Somerset fire services.
The contract which will see the sharing of ICT services, mobile data services and training and management, is expected to cost between £4 million and £7 million.
The shared services project, named ‘Tri-Service Control’ is expected to deliver large cost savings, with the shared Devon and Somerset Fire services agreement saving £4.2 million from its 2007 implementation.
