Supplier engagement for market research required.

CPS is seeking to provide Juries and other key participants in Crown Court trials with Jury bundles via a digital solution. Jury bundles contain the exhibits that Prosecution & Defense Counsel intend to refer to during the trial. These are usually documentary exhibits such as telephone records, transcripts of the defendant’s police interview, diagrams and photographs.

The intention is to pilot the developed solution in a single trial courtroom before evaluation, before widening to no more than 5x Courtrooms in different parts of the Country. This pilot phase will then be evaluated before any decision made to roll out further. Further regional & national rollout will be subject to further evaluation points.
