In this new contract, BT will be delivering desktop services to 2,000 Bromley staff. The company will also manage more than 350 servers, giving Bromley Council greater flexibility in running their ICT services with the ability to flex services up and down to suit demand.
The contract is expected to generate significant cost savings in the region of 10 per cent for the Council, with services planned to go live in April 2016.
The contract was won by BT as part of a pan-London framework agreement for Information and Communications Technology (ICT) services set up by Westminster City Council, the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea and Hammersmith and Fulham Councils.
The procurement framework, available to all 33 London boroughs, is designed to consolidate ICT spend and streamline the procurement process to increase efficiency, cut costs and deliver cutting edge technology.
Latest contract win
This is the latest contract BT has been awarded since the framework was established in 2014. It follows agreements with Westminster City Council and the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham, to manage end user computing and data centre services, and with the London Borough of Islington to provide strategic consultancy services.
Councillor Stephen Carr, leader of Bromley Council, said: “As we move towards our vision of being a commissioning council, we needed a company that would deliver excellent service but also respond to the changing shape of our business. The pan-London ICT framework set up by Westminster City Council and delivered by BT gives us everything we need. It provides us with clear and transparent pricing and a more efficient and streamlined buying process, helping us to speed up the delivery of projects and save money.”
