TfL selects Computacenter and Fujitsu for £25m ICT installation framework
Agreement aims to support ongoing requirements for the installation of ICT and wireless functions by TfL members and wider GLA group
Transport for London (TfL) has named Computacenter and Fujitsu Services to a £25m framework contract for the supply of ICT installation and associated services.
The framework, which is open to both TFL and the Greater London Authority (GLA) group, has been launched to meet ongoing requirements for the provision of services to support the installation of ICT and wireless functions.
Under the agreement, TfL will be able to obtain cable installation - including Ethernet, fibre optic, voice and data - electrical services, ducting and containment and data centre installations. On the hardware side, the contract will also cover servers and switches, data storage and patching through the contract, as well as wireless services and electronic service update board (ESUB) installations
"Services will relate to the life-cycle of each of the above categories, which may include but not be limited to, design, construction, planning, advisory, training, analytics, project management, and limited support and maintenance; and works will be those required for installations as appropriate from time to time," the tender document said.
TfL last year announced that Computacenter was one of four suppliers, along with CSC, Insight Direct and Proband, chosen to provide hardware and software for its members through a two year reseller and associated services framework agreement valued between £40m and £80m.
These frameworks will support a wider TfL strategy to switch to service integration and management (SIAM) and towers model that will disaggregate ICT needs from multiple suppliers.
Under this strategy, TfL last month appointed Atos as a Primary Service Desk contractor in a £6m deal designed to support its shift to the new information management model.
