Solution Delivery and Integration Management (SDIM)
The implementation of a revised model for Solution Delivery is an integral component of the larger transformation programme across Digital Policing (DP). The Digital Policing Transformation Programme is a key enabler of the One Met Model (OMM 2020). This programme will implement a new delivery model for digital services that meets business needs and reduces operating costs. This programme of change has been derived from a revised target operating model for DP (the ‘DP TOM’). This new Solution Delivery model fits and complements the MPS’s strategic direction and also addresses the problems inherent in the current Solution Delivery Model.
