II.2.4) Description of procurement: As the UK Government department responsible for cyber security growth and innovation policy, the Department for Digital, Culture Media & Sport is seeking to procure a supplier to deliver the London cyber innovation centre. Consistent with the aims of the National Cyber Security Strategy, the innovation centre will act as a focal point for innovators and cyber security start-up companies to base themselves in the early stage of their development as they strive to develop ideas and concepts in collaboration with industry, leading ultimately to the creation of new products and solutions with a potential end customer in mind.

The centre should act as a catalyst for new ideas, leading to bold and inventive cyber security solutions. It should provide a range of bespoke support to the UKs brightest, most innovative companies and entrepreneurs, including support from the organisations that have informed the challenge lists and the selection of those companies and entrepreneurs. It is our vision that the centre should represent a new approach to fostering collaboration in cyber security across different sectors and to support cyber security start-ups to grow and scale at a rapid pace.

It is our aim that the centre will provide a unique environment in which talent, creativity, entrepreneurship and innovation can flourish. The centre should not be just another accelerator programme or incubator facility, but an environment in which cyber security start-ups and companies are supported to develop products and solutions in collaboration with industry partners. To support that endeavour, those start-ups should also be afforded access to high-quality support relative to their needs through a holistic and tailored approach.

Our investment is intended to support the establishment of the centre and its initial operation and it is our intention that the centre will become self-sustaining beyond that initial investment. The supplier will be expected to demonstrate in their bid how they propose to make the centre self-sustaining after the initial three-year period.
