NG Bailey’s IT Services business, part of its services arm, has won contracts worth over £10 million to support Fujitsu in delivering services for the Ministry of Defence (MoD).
The company has worked with Fujitsu for six years and most of the work is being supplied as part of the Defence Connectivity Network Services project.
From May, the team of IT specialists will be providing break-fix capability for passive infrastructure on the MoD estate across the UK, Cyprus and north-west Europe.
The team will be supporting a large number of bases with Data LAN services, along with voice maintenance services at several locations. Passive infrastructure includes Cat5, Cat5e, Cat6 and Cat6a data cabling, all types of fibre optics mediums and telephony.
The contract also includes a range of service level agreements to make sure that key infrastructure is available 24/7.
The second contract, which began in March, is part of the Future Maritime Support Programme based at HM Naval Base in Portsmouth. The team will deliver a fast-paced installation of internal and external communications infrastructure, including civils, electrical and containment work.
Tim Briggs-Mould, NG Bailey’s IT Services Defence Sector director, said: “We have supported critical defence projects throughout our 100-year history and we have demonstrated proven delivery capability and experience to both Fujitsu and the MoD.”
Kelly Tedesco, managing director of NG Bailey’s IT Services division, added: “This contract win reflects the strength of our Services offering, as well as our relationship with Fujitsu. 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 these important and complex projects.”
