Council framework is spread over seven lots and Computacenter is in six of them
Computacenter is the major winners in a three year multi-lot £10.3 million framework to provide IT hardware and software services to organisations across Liverpool City Council.
The new seven-lot framework replaces a previous deal the council had with BT to supply similar services. BT was bought out of that deal as the council said it wanted to save more money.
Lot 1 – Hardware: Computacenter, Stone Computers and Insight Direct
Lot 2 – Software: Computacenter, Bytes Software Services and COMPAREX
Lot 3 – Professional Services: Computacenter, Phoenix Software and Computeam
Lot 4 – Support and Maintenance: Newcorp Computer Services
Lot 5 – e-Catalogue: Computacenter
Lot 6 – Hardware for schools: Computacenter, Stone Computers and Insight Direct
Lot 7 – Software for schools: Computacenter, Insight direct and Nviron
In addition to the framework, two other awards were made. A learning management system worth around £260,000 will be supplied by New Media Warehouse (Synergy Learning), and HPE will supply hardware and monitoring support for the council’s existing network security infrastructure in a deal worth £380,000.
