BSIA researches utility sector's security procurement

The procurement attitudes of the utility sector are being sought by the British Security Industry Association (BSIA) , the trade body representing the UK's private security industry. The aim of the research is to understand the factors that influence security procurement and investment in the utility sector.

James Kelly, BSIA chief executive, said: “Protecting the staff and infrastructure that powers our country is of paramount importance to utility providers. By gaining an understanding of our industry’s clients and their security needs, we can ensure a closer relationship between buyers and suppliers throughout the procurement, implementation and maintenance of security products and services.

“We know that utility providers take security extremely seriously; a breach of security could have catastrophic consequences. We want to make sure that those responsible for the procurement of security solutions are receiving the goods and services they need, which are fit for purpose now and for the future.”

The online survey is open to all individuals involved in the procurement and management of security products and services. Questions cover a wide range of topics including the impact of economic recovery on security spending.

The survey, which closes on June 12, will ultimately identify emerging trends in buying behaviour, and how these relate to perceived security threats facing a number of business sectors, including retail, transport, healthcare and education.
