Police will use SAP as a service to help drive the amnesty and buyback of semi-automatic fire-arms ordered in the wake of the Christchurch terror attacks in March.

In a report to Parliament, the Police said a new SAP as a service arrangement has been stood up to cover requirements of the firearms amnesty and buy-back legislation in response to the Christchurch shootings. 

The funding source for this was yet to be determined.

Reporting on other as a service plans, Police said it had recently entered into as a service arrangements with ServiceNow for ICT service management and asset management and with Pegasystems for arms licensing capabilities. 

A move to Office 365 which provides email and productivity software as a service was also underway and would be managed from existing baseline funding.

The agency reported projects in 2019/20 were expected to cover ongoing mobility initiatives and service delivery improvements involving public communication channels.

An ICT refresh and enhancement of police’s technical infrastructure and applications was also expected, including refresh and enhancements to the ERP systems, transformation of enterprise applications to use cloud technologies, and improvements to communications and networks.

A next generation critical communications network, including radio assurance of the existing network, was approved in Budget 2019.
