European Parliament awards BT two landmark contracts for high performance networked IT services
To operate efficiently the European Parliament needs high performance networked IT services in areas such as IP telephony, unified communications, videoconferencing, telepresence, security, and internet access.
In December 2011, the European Parliament awarded BT two framework contracts, together worth up to €120 million. The five-year contracts cover a wide range of networked IT services, including the supply of applications and network equipment (including intelligent switches, routers, and broadband multiplexers) for the European Parliament's telecommunications infrastructure and systems.
BT will function as the sole supplier to the Parliament for related professional services such as systems integration, maintenance, training, and reporting. Service delivery will take place at the European Parliament’s three main sites in Brussels, Luxembourg, and Strasbourg.
A spokesperson for the European Parliament says: “BT put together a competitive and strong offering which really stood out. Their highly-skilled integration experts and a vendor agnostic approach should enable us to implement all communication infrastructures and services according to our call for tender specifications. This makes me confident that we have chosen the right partner, who will help our organisation to become more efficient and reduce costs.”
Luis Alvarez, President for EMEA & Latin America at BT Global Services, adds: “I am extremely proud to announce these large government sector contracts. Our extensive portfolio of services and our professional services capabilities were instrumental in winning these deals. Our consultancy and systems integration expertise is increasingly recognised in the industry. I want to thank the European Parliament for the trust they put into BT, and I look forward to delivering services of the highest possible quality to this forward looking institution.”
With the new contracts, BT strengthens its position in the global government sector and with European Union (EU) institutions in particular. BT already holds an inter-institutional contract with the EU for wide area network (WAN) services and provides multiple institutions with internet access as well as highly skilled consultancy through its professional services organisation. BT is also one of the largest UK suppliers of networked IT solutions for government.
