IT Managed Services Provider Esteem has been awarded a place on the new £6billion Technology Products government agreement.
The Technology Products agreement, which is valued at between £4 - £6billion for its 2 year duration, is owned by the Crown Commercial Service (CCS) and enables all public sector organisations across the UK to source and procure IT products and solutions.
Esteem, who design, build, integrate and support IT infrastructures in the public sector, is well placed on Lot 1 of the agreement: ‘Technology Hardware’ which includes the procurement of hardware, such as vendor neutral user devices, peripherals, server and storage products, with associated services and solutions such as support services, and maintenance.
Through the agreement, public sector organisations can experience a simplified buying cycle, gain access to leading IT solution providers and ensure value for money from their IT procurement.
Esteem CEO, Joe Connolly said: “Whether it’s building a private cloud infrastructure for a local government, or migrating a university onto a virtualised desktop, our 30 years of experience in the public sector and our credentials with the UK’s leading technology vendors enables us to deliver cost effective integrated technology solutions.
This agreement will allow us to expand our offering in the government, health and education sector, working with technology partners such as Dell and EMC. As an Oracle Platinum Partner, the agreement will also open up new opportunities for us in local and central government.”
The agreement has four lots in total covering the procurement of hardware through to packaged software, security products and end user devices.
