3 - Considering that the same resolution recognises that the existence of a sole network dedicated to communications of this nature constitutes a suitable instrument to ensure greater rationalisation in the management of financial resources and optimisation of use of the radioelectric spectrum, also making it possible to effectively satisfy the operational requirements of the emergency services and security forces, specifically in terms of quality, reliability and security of communications;

6 - The Home Office (MAI) should contact the other departments of the State's central administration to which the entities with responsibilities in the field of emergency services and security forces report, in order to determine the respective global and individual communication needs and the collection of data for the preparation of the tender specifications required in order for the public tender to be launched;
7 - Considering that since July 1, 1998 the Office of Studies and Planning of Installations (Gabinete de Estudos e de Planeamento de Instalações), has been mandated by the Assistant Secretary of State of the Home Office to form part of the informal group of 12 nations that have projects for the communications networks of the national security forces;
8 - Considering that, in this ambit, the Office of Studies and Planning of Installations, in compliance with point 7 of the Resolution of the Council of Ministers no. 89/99, has contacted the entities with attributions in the field of emergency services and security forces in order to obtain the factual elements concerning the volume of communications made by the entities that will use the future mobile network for the emergency services, and all data required to prepare the tender specifications to be used in the public tender whose object is the establishment and supply of the said communications network;
It is hereby determined that:
The Office of Studies and Planning of Installations of the Home Office will prepare and co-ordinate the studies and other initiatives required to conduct the adjudication procedure inherent to the establishment and supply of the future mobile network of the emergency services and security forces, to be implemented in accordance with TETRA technology, in the band 380 MHz-400 MHz, within the scope of the Resolution of the Council of Ministers no. 87/99, of 12August.
