RFP Issued: Electronic Monitoring Programme

June 13, 2022

The Government has issued a Request for Proposals [RFP] for an Electronic Monitoring Programme.

The notice said, “The Government of Bermuda is seeking to expand and maintain its programmes to monitor, manage and change behaviours in offenders, with the protection of the community as the primary consideration. Electronic monitoring involves having an electronic bracelet [device] attached to an offender, deemed to need of intensive monitoring, and/or having restrictions placed on their movements.

“As they remain in the community, with mechanisms to promote behaviour change and minimize risks to the community, the Government is seeking a reliable partnership with a proponent who will effectively and efficiently manage, maintain and monitor this programme utilizing state of the art equipment and services.

“The Ministry of Legal Affairs and Constitutional Reform Electronic Monitoring Programme currently consists of GPS/cellular tracking devices that have been placed on offenders that are categorized in one of the following groups: a] Pre-trial Monitoring or b] Post-trial Monitoring [during community-based supervision].  The Government is seeking to retain the services of eligible and suitably qualified local or overseas-based firms specializing in the provision of offender monitoring hardware.

“The Proponent must furnish costs for a complete “system”, leveraging existing technologies across the Government, relevant to the proposed Electronic Monitoring Programme, for the duration of the initial three years contract, and the costs for optional products.

“Although cost is a significant consideration, product reliability and performance; customer service and support; staff knowledge and qualifications; company financial stability; and local benefit to Bermuda are also critical to selecting the preferred proponent for the proposed system by the Government.”
