Brazil's Distrito Federal has announced that it has signed the contract to develop a security control center through the PPP model.
The project is an administrative concession for development, operation, maintenance and management of the infrastructure of the Center for Integrated Management for a period of 15 years which could be extended for others 20 years.
The consortium Iten was chosen as the preferred bidder in a tender process that was launched in March 2013. The consortium is formed by IT2B Tecnología y Servicios SA, Engevix Engenharia SA and LPM Teleinformática Ltda.
The security control centre will allow real-time monitoring of strategic information about Brasilia, initially with an emphasis on public safety for the World Cup 2014. The project will integrate data from diverse areas, gathering information of approximately seven thousand sensors and three thousand cameras installed in the state. The goal is to increase the security, control, decision making and the improvement of public services.
In February 2014, Brazil's Distrito Federal, through the State Department of Health (SES), canceled a tender process for a health administrative concession contract due to issues raised by the Audit Court of the Federal District (Tribunal de Contas do Distrito Federal - TCDF).
