Home Office wants to develop and enhance HOPS platform

£4m project aims to create better re-use of data to support digitisation across the Home Office


Home Office Platform for Storage (HOPS)  is looking for a digital transformation partner with experience in development and delivering digital services to support digitisation across the Home Office.

It wants to enhance a Beta phase digital file storage and retrieval cloud based store, and roll it out to new customer groups.

HOPS supports digital transformation across the Home Office by providing the mechanism by which digitised documents and data can be ingested, stored, accessed and interrogated. Removing the need and cost of moving paper around the organisation creates better re-use of data by being able to interrogate electronic files. 

HOPS requires the development of enhancements and on-boarding of multiple customer groups during 2018/19 and beyond, the opportunity on the Digital Outcomes and Specialists framework explains.

The aim is that HOPS becomes the strategic document store for the Home Office, built to GDS standards. 

HOPS needs feature enhancements and development to support Home Office digitisation, establish HOPS as the strategic choice and make it an attractive solution in terms of capability, cost, and ease of on-boarding for its customers.

The work includes integrating HOPS as back-end document storage for a large case management system as well as exposing an API already built, enabling a new pipeline of circa 3.9m documents a year into the system. 

The budget for the project is £4m, with an expected contract length of two years. The closing date for applications is February 22.
