University of New South Wales is looking to upgrade its CCTV network and video management software.
Recent evaluations by UNSW Security in consultation with staff and students, and external agencies (NSW Police and external consultants) have identified gaps in the security monitoring network.
Further, the international student barometer has extensively surveyed overseas students and 92 per cent identified security as an important factor in choosing a campus to study.
Security and wellbeing are major contributors to a positive campus experience which is a critical factor in many international university rankings calculations.
UNSW prides itself on providing a safe campus to its staff and students and has developed an effective security service to address security across the campus.
Upgrades and improvements in security systems are required constantly and this expression of interest seeks to focus on immediate and essential upgrades.
The university comprises 8 faculties, with the main campus located on a 38-hectare (94-acre) site in the Sydney suburb of Kensington. The creative arts faculty, UNSW Art & Design, is at Paddington, UNSW Canberra is located at the Australian Defence Force Academy in Canberra and there are sub-campuses in the Sydney CBD and in Randwick and Coogee. Research stations are located throughout New South Wales. UNSW has an annual endowment of around $A1.7 billion, 6200 academic staff and around 55,000 students.
The CCTV tender closes on July 24.♦
