NG Bailey has won a five-year £50 million-plus contract with Fujitsu to support its Ministry of Defence (MoD) ICT transformation project.

The NG Baily contract will help deliver greater agility and mobility to service personnel, with the work helping to deliver “significant financial savings” to the MOD.

“This is a significant win for NG Bailey,” said Bob Dunnett, managing director of NG Bailey’s IT Services Division – the part of the business that will deliver the work. “It is a privilege to work alongside Fujitsu to develop and improve the MoD’s IT infrastructure.

“The vital role that our partnership will play puts us at the heart of the future UK defence strategy, and will ultimately help the MoD defend the UK’s national interests.”

David Hurcomb, NG Bailey’s CEO, added: “Working hand-in-glove with Fujitsu has already been a pleasure and we are very proud to be applying our expertise to such an important initiative.

“By enhancing the MoD’s communications infrastructure our work will not only realise tremendous cost savings which will be reinvested into defence, it will also make the Ministry more efficient and more effective in its mission to keep Britain safe.”
