IT Managed Services Provider Esteem has been awarded a place on 9 of 11 lots of the new Technology Services government agreement, which will centralise public sector procurement and help protect front line services.
The Technology Services agreement, owned by the Crown Commercial Service (CCS), is valued at between £100 – £200million.
The agreement enables all public sector organisations across the UK to source and procure IT managed services, making significant cost savings with access to competitive pricing.
As a leading IT services provider to the public sector, Esteem is one of few suppliers who have been awarded places on both on this agreement and the CCS Technology Products agreement which was released earlier this year.
The nine lots which Esteem has been awarded on the agreement are: Help Desk/Service Desk, Desktop Support, Network Management, Network and Content Security, Infrastructure and Platform and Maintenance and Support, Audit Services and Asset Management, Service Integration/Service Integrator, Disaster Recovery/Business Continuity, Back up and Data Services.
Esteem CEO Joe Connolly said: “Following our success on the Technology Products framework earlier this year, we are delighted to have also been awarded these 9 places on the Technology Services agreement. We work with some of the largest health trusts in the UK, with some of the most established universities and with charities and local governments across the UK. Because of our history with these customers we understand how innovative IT services and solutions can help public sector organisations ‘do more with less’ under increasing budget cuts. We design and deliver bespoke IT services which increase efficiencies and enable organisations to deliver an improved service to the public.”
The Technology Services agreement went live earlier this month.
