  • A centralized integrated, web-based data management system for Police Service, separating data for internal use and data for public dissemination.
  • Warehousing of data that allows easy updating and reduces risks.
  • Accessibility to data from various sources electronically to eliminate manual entry.
The database system should have the following features:-

i) Multi-frequency and ability to record and store daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly and annual data.
ii) Be compatible with computer systems for both internal and external sources of data.
iii) Be capable of generating various reports as required;
iv) Be able to generate data in formats which are compatible with various spreadsheet and econometric software e.g. Excel, Eviews and PcGive.
v) Provide report writing tools that make it easy to define new reports and customise existing reports.
vi) High degree of parameterisation and scalablity to allow easy customisation of the system to meet KEPOCRIMS current and future requirements.
vii) Ability to automatically schedule data imports and exports to occur based on defined criteria such as, for example, time of the day and day of the week.

The Kenya National Bureau of Statistics now invites eligible consultants to indicate their interest in providing the services. Interested consultants must provide information indicating that they are qualified to perform the services (brochures, description of similar assignments, experience in similar conditions, availability of appropriate skills among staff, etc.).
Consultants may associate to enhance their qualifications.
