Transport for London (TfL) has appointed 12 companies for its IT systems framework, which will be used to provide ICT project delivery services.
The framework contract is worth between £80m and £95m, and will last for two years with an option to extend until 2019.
The 12 suppliers on the framework include CSC, Atos, CGI and Capita. The suppliers on the framework will bid for opportunities via mini-competitions.
Capita IT Enterprise Services executive director Peter Hands said being appointed on the framework “means we will be able to bid for work to provide TfL with IT infrastructure delivery and transformation across its entire business”.
TfL went out to tender in December 2014. The original tender document said the framework agreement is intended to provide products and services “required to meet TfL’s ICT project delivery needs”.
“The opportunity created by this framework is accessible to small and medium-sized enterprises, and niche providers,” the tender document added.
“Each supplier on the framework will be required to demonstrate they can provide the full range of services required to deliver a small, medium, or large-scale ICT project.”
The products and services include project management services, consultancy and advice, business change, requirements analysis, design, development, testing, product delivery, implementation, transition, and training, according to the tender document. Other companies on the framework are Sopra Steria, Lockheed Martin, Keytree, Infosys, HCL Axon, Deloitte, Cognizant and BAE Systems.
