FCN’s contract services help members obtain the forensic science services they need including Ident 1, PACE and Crime Scene, digital forensics, DNA, toxicology drugs and other specialisms.
By taking a coordinated approach, we are optimising the commercial and contracting landscape. This harnesses national collective efforts in a way that isn’t possible commercially, at a local level or on an individual basis.
FCN has a highly experienced commercial contracting team. We are focused on ensuring a stable, high-performance forensic science marketplace which meets the needs of policing and the criminal justice system, now and in the future.
Our offer to police forces and other members includes:
- Creating flexible contracts to meet current and future needs
- Developing tender specifications and documents and co-ordinate new procurements
- Ensuring consistent delivery and a sustainable supply chain
FCN also works with both members and suppliers on monitoring contracts against the terms and conducting supplier audits.
We also provide oversight on suppliers’ financial positions, backlogs, ongoing work and turnaround times.
FCN’s specialist commercial services team has significant experience in the forensics and policing sector.
All requests for support will be acknowledged within seven days, followed by a more detailed response once the request has been reviewed by the appropriate specialist.
