Queensland Police have released an Invitation To Offer (ITO) for GPS equipped roadside breath testing devices. ICT requirements include software to transfer data from the device to a Brisbane fileserver, as well as hardware supplies such as “interface cables, dongle keys, passwords or other devices necessary to communicate with and adjust settings on the specific device at all user access levels.”
The ITO requires devices that are capable of capturing the GPS location of the testing procedure. Non ICT components include: GPS Breath testing devices; service and operator manuals; technical training courses; mouthpieces; spare parts; and professional witness services.
According to the ITO, up to 23% of Queensland’s road fatalities can be attributed to alcohol each year.
