£64.5m contract intended to deliver software, hardware and telecommunications services over the next 10 years
Tower Hamlets council has awarded a £64.5m ICT contract to Agilisys which will cover the supply, installation and maintenance of a range of software, hardware and telecommunications services.
The “partnership” between the east London authority and its technology supplier is intended to achieve cost savings, as well as making back office services more efficient and achieving the goals set out in the council’s community plan.
According to a notice in the Official Journal of the European Union, Agilisys is expected to begin with the replacement or refresh of the Tower Hamlet’s finance and HR systems.
The initial seven-year term of the agreement could be extended by a further three years.
