The current system comprises around 6000 fixed and PTZ cameras, as well as hundreds of digital video recorders. The tender closes on October 20, 2004. While RailCorp isn’t saying, the specifications suggest a networked solution incorporating server farms. On the strength of this it’s likely a consortium comprising video surveillance integrators and IT and networking solutions providers will win the prize. The winning tenderer will be required to transform the current CCTV system to ensure that it meets RailCorp’s requirements and to improve the overall efficiency of the System by implementing current technologies. The winning tenderer will also provide services relating to the provision, installation, support, monitoring and reporting of CCTV camera and Help Points throughout CityRail. The original installation was worth around $A60 million and its likely a shift to a networking solution would increase that figure significantly.

According to the tender specifications, RailCorp has the following objective for this RFP: To select a contractor who, in the opinion of RailCorp, will provide the greatest value-for-money in the effective delivery of the CCTV and Help Point Services.
