DORS+ is a bespoke software development which acts as a data and integration hub between the police, training providers and the general public. It also supports the management and administration of the NDORS scheme and the accreditation and assessment of training providers.
DORS+ consists of four web-based portals which support the following high level use cases:
— police forces are able to register and administer offenders for whom behavioural change education is appropriate;
— training providers are able to list course availability and manage attendance;
— the general public are able to search for and arrange appropriate training in response to an offer from the police;
— UKROEd and its contracted assessors are able to administer the scheme and the accreditation of training suppliers.
As well as the web based portal there are APIs to allow programmatic access to key DORS+ functions. The DORS+ application is written in Angular and C# using the .Net WebAPI framework.
UKROEd are looking for a partner who can provide a managed service for the DORS+ software application, ensuring that it continues to reliably support up to 2 million people who access its services annually. The chosen service provider will act as the prime contractor for maintenance and support as well as ongoing development and enhancement of the platform and the secure, UK domiciled, hosting of all data and technology assets.

— BS EN ISO 9001:2015,

Further, UKROEd has specified a minimum level of economic standing of GBP 2.5 million. Bidders will need to demonstrate said level of turnover in order for their bid to be considered.
