Five Organisations Selected As Assessing Bodies for the Approved Contractor Scheme

Security Industry Authority : 29 March, 2010  (Company News)
From 9 tenders, 5 bidders have been accepted by the Security Industry Authority for providing assessment services as part of the Approved Contractor Scheme by the SIA
The SIA's Approved Contractor team has recently completed a re-tender project for the provision of assessment services.

Fourteen bidders were invited to tender, nine tender responses were received and six bidders were short-listed for an interview following the initial tender evaluation.

The SIA has appointed five assessing bodies for an initial contract period from 1 April 2010 - 31 March 2013. The successful bidders are:

• British Standards Institution
• Chamber Certification and Assessment Services
• Insight Certification t/a National Security Inspectorate
• ISOQAR
• Security Systems and Alarms Inspection Board

This means that relatively few approved contractors will need to change their assessing body as a result of the re-tender process.

The project followed an Assessor Strategy Review that recommended that the SIA continue to contract out the ACS assessment services and appoint between three to five assessing bodies.
