FOI Request re software solution used to manage and track staff vetting

Currently waiting for a response from Durham Constabulary, they should respond promptly and normally no later than (details).

Dear Durham Constabulary,

i withdrew the original request due to COVID however my research has now been re-commenced.

I am currently researching what software solutions Police Forces use to manage and track staff vetting and would be most grateful if you would provide me, under the Freedom of Information Act, details in respect to the contract below.

The details we require are:

• What, if any, bespoke software is used for managing and tracking staff vetting?
• If bespoke software is used, what was the start date, duration and value of the contract?
• Is there an extension clause in the contract and, if so, the duration of the extension?
• Has a decision been made yet on whether the contract is are being either extended or renewed?
• Who is the senior officer (outside of procurement) responsible for managing the vetting process?

Thank you for your help.

Yours faithfully,
Angela Price
