CENTERPRISE International (Ci) has won a second major contract to deliver IT services to the Treasury.
The leading Basingstoke-based technology supplier has won a printing services contract.
It comes weeks after the announcement that Ci had won the bid to provide the Treasury’s media and wireless ICT services – the first contract to be awarded as part of the government department’s HMTICT2015 Programme.
The programme introduces several smaller contracts to replace services which are currently provided by a single supplier at the Treasury.
Centerprise International will fulfil the Printing Services contract in partnership with OKI.
Tom Hyner, HM Treasury’s ICT 2015 procurement lead, said of the Printing Services contract award: “I’m very pleased to have awarded a second of the ICT 2015 Tower contracts to Centerprise International. The partnership between OKI and Centerprise International to deliver our Printing Services offers us a scalable, flexible and robust solution that will be capable of meeting the needs of the Treasury business both now and in the years to come.
“Engaging SMEs with the ability to deliver, the commitment to quality and customer focused attitude such as Centerprise International and enabling them to grow is a good thing for those organizations as well as for government ICT in the years to come.
“The award of these contracts shows how an accessible procurement process can open the government ICT market and get best value for the taxpayer from both SMEs and new entrants.”
Centerprise International business manager Jeremy Nash, said: “To be awarded a second contract within the ICT 2015 Programme is an amazing achievement for Ci and further evidences that SMEs are able to compete successfully for business within the UK Public Sector. “Our managed print service offering to HM Treasury leverages our strong partnership with OKI and combines their industry leading technology with our expertise in delivering managed services. We have designed a solution that is tailored to the business need and will provide users with a first class service.
“The Wireless and Media Service, and Printing Service Towers are strategic wins for Ci as they signal our aspiration to become a prominent and respected managed service provider within Central Government and wider-Public Sector.”
Huw Stephens, HM Treasury’s ICT 2015 programme director said: “These new partnerships mean HM Treasury’s ICT services will become more flexible, more responsive and more competitive in line with the government’s vision for ICT. We will now be working closely with all of our suppliers to ensure that delivery is achieved in a smooth and collaborative manner.”
