NG Bailey’s IT Services team has taken a new three-year overseas managed service contract to support BT‘s delivery of telecommunications services for the Ministry of Defence.
The contract, worth £4.7 million to NG Bailey, will see the team deliver voice, data and videoconferencing services as well as fixed and mobile voice services for the MoD in Cyprus and Germany.
The work constitutes part of the MoD’s Defence Fixed Telecommunications Service (DFTS) and Integrated User Services (IUS) contracts.
The contract – one of several NG Bailey holds with BT – is being led by Tim Briggs-Mould, NG Bailey’s IT Services Defence Sector director, who said: “For a long time we have recognised the importance of the defence sector, and our strategy has been to grow in this area by utilising and showcasing our proven delivery capability, our significant experience and utilising the expertise of many of our employees, who themselves are ex-military.”
Kelly Tedesco, managing director of NG Bailey’s IT Services division, said: “This contract win reflects the strength of our services offering, as well as our relationship with BT.
“For this project we demonstrated our clear technical expertise, which combined with our strong knowledge of the sector, means our clients are confident that we can deliver on important and complex projects.”
