ID and Access control systems (FOI)
ID and Access control systems (FOI)Produced by the Freedom of Information office
Authored by states of Jersey and published on 02 February 2017.
I am putting together a proposal to save a considerable amount of money on products associated with staff identification (ID) and access control.
Please can you provide me with the following:
- contact details (name, department, telephone and email address) for the person responsible for the purchasing decision for these cards
- full description, frequency and quantities ordered and current price paid of door access cards / fobs
- full description, frequency and quantities ordered and current price paid of ID card printer ribbons for personalising the ID / access cards
- full description, frequency and quantities ordered and current price paid of card display / wearing accessories
- full description, frequency and quantities ordered and current price paid of pre-printed ID cards, where applicable
If easier can you focus on door access cards and fobs for all buildings and whom is responsible for ordering the items?
With infrequent orders can you please provide details of your most recent order, and the contact details of who is responsible for ordering these products?
No single person is responsible for purchasing ID cards or access cards / fobs across the States of Jersey. The majority of these items are procured by the Department of Infrastructure, whose contact details are:
Department for Infrastructure
Jersey Property Holdings
La Route du Port Elizabeth
Tel: +44 (0)1534 447800
The department is able to forward contact information to relevant officers in other departments of the States of Jersey responsible for ordering ID cards or access cards / fobs.
However, all prospective suppliers are requested to register as a supplier under Supply Jersey, the States of Jersey’s web-based purchasing system, details of which are on the following link.
Becoming a supplier (Supply Jersey)
There is no regular cyclical order for:
- ID card printer ribbons for personalising the ID / access cards
- card display / wearing accessories
They are ordered as required and the price obtained will reflect the nature and quantity of the goods procured.
The most recent order associated with staff ID / access control was the implementation of a new door entry system within Cyril Le Marquand House, St Helier, Jersey, JE4 8QT, in 2016 and 2017.
This was tendered locally and awarded to a local contractor, Power Protection & Security Limited. The items were procured by the Department of Infrastructure’s Jersey Property Holdings, whose contact details are above.
The cost of this contract, which is still live, is considered commercially sensitive and this part of the request is therefore refused under Article 33(b) Commercial Interests of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011.
Article 33 Commercial interests
Information is qualified exempt information if –
(a) it constitutes a trade secret; or
(b) its disclosure would, or would be likely to, prejudice the commercial interests of a person (including the scheduled public authority holding the information).
Article 33 is a qualified exemption and is therefore subject to a public interest test.
Justification for the exemption
The information is of significant commercial value and its disclosure would, or would be likely to, prejudice the commercial interests of the third party and the scheduled public authority. It is not considered to be in the public interest to release this information.
