Tech supplier Centerprise International has won a major four-year contract to deliver media and wireless ICT services to the Treasury.
The Basingstoke-based IT services specialist has been awarded the first contract in the Treasury’s HMT ICT 2015 Programme, which breaks up its single provider arrangement into a number of managed service contracts. More than 100 companies showed an interest in the opportunity.
The deal is Centerprise's first Central Government contract and coincides with its 30-year anniversary.
Centerprise competed for the Media and Wireless Tower. It will provide support and maintenance of a wireless infrastructure, associated services, a TV distribution infrastructure and service, unclassified end user devices and associated services, as well as cloud-based video conferencing services and on-site support.
The support includes an ICT Loan service and ensuring meeting rooms are in working order.
Centerprise's video conferencing service is hosted on a secure network and in the cloud, minimising the need to install equipment. It operates on a low fixed monthly fee for unlimited use and makes use of 'real time activity monitoring'. The Treasury will not need to put in its own time or manpower to maintain it.
Jeremy Nash, systems integrators business manager at Centerprise, said: “This is a big win for us. We are an SME employing about 130 people, so to be able to compete for Central Government contracts opens up a whole other level of business for us.
“We have a great deal of experience working in defence, education and wider public sector markets, so we are delighted to be given this opportunity.”
