Selected as a Managed Service Provider

The Department for Transport has appointed Version 1 as their Managed Service Provider for the Collision Recording and Sharing (CRaSH) IT system, which the Department is committed to further developing, maintaining, and servicing the CRaSH Web and Mobile application for UK police forces, including Police Scotland.

The Department for Transport works with agencies and partners to support the transport network that helps UK businesses and gets people and goods travelling around the country. The Department is responsible for planning and investing in transport infrastructure to keep the UK safely on the move.

CRaSH IT Managed Service

CRaSH provides mission-critical road casualty data to the Department for Transport to inform the patrol and accident prevention strategies of Department for Transport, Highways England, police, local authorities, and road safety organisations.

The system is currently owned and hosted by the Department for Transport in Microsoft Azure and is managed in conjunction with the National Police Chiefs’ Council and National Policing Information Risk Management Policy Team. Version 1 will provide transition support for the CRaSH IT system, expected to go live in Summer 2021.

Katherine Williamson, Head of Road Safety Statistics and CRaSH, said:

DfT are looking forward to working with Version 1 to ensure CRaSH users and our wider road safety community receive outstanding service as we continue to expand the use of CRaSH.

Olivia Carroll, Head of Service Reliability Group at Version 1, said:

We are delighted to have been awarded the CRaSH contract and are looking forward to working with Katherine Williamson and her team at the Department for Transport. With recent major investments into our Cloud Support offering, we are excited to demonstrate the value of our Managed Services.
