The Department for Culture, Media and Sport has signed a £14m contract with IT services company Atos Origin.

The contract continues a 15-year outsourcing relationship between the two, meaning Atos Origin will continue to support the Department for Culture, Media and Sport in staging the 2012 Olympic games.

The company will deliver and manage all IT infrastructure and services. They will include lower energy technologies in their work and will also manage all applications support and development.

Mark O'Neill, CIO at the department, said, "Following a competitive tender, we selected Atos Origin because it demonstrated the solution that would best meet our needs and enable us to meet our strategic priorities as we aim to improve the cultural and sporting life for all.

"We have worked with the company since 1993 and have been impressed by their commitment to deliver and their strong understanding of our business needs."
