Fujitsu inks HM Government’s Desktop21 framework agreement

To provide desktop services to the public sector

By CBR Staff Writer

BuyingOfferings, the national procurement partner for UK public services, in collaboration with the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) and the Office of Government Commerce (OGC), has awarded a framework agreement to Fujitsu as one of the three ‘Tier One’ suppliers to provide desktop services to the wider public sector as part of its four-year Desktop21 framework agreement which starts on 1st March 2010.

The award of ‘Desktop21’ follows Fujitsu’s IT consultancy and delivery services framework awarded in August 2009.

Fujitsu said that it offers public sector a set of services that will provide desktop managed services including ‘thin’ and ‘thick’ client capability, mobile and wireless devices and support, service transformation, as well as day-to-day services such as print, network and service desk.

The company said that it will use a common platform and a model of aggregating common elements for clients to ensure the public sector organisations procuring from ‘Desktop21’ have the best possible service. The framework is suitable for organisations procuring for 1,500 seats and upwards.

Eithne Wallis CB, managing director of UK Government Division at Fujitsu UK and Ireland, said: Our success as part of the Desktop21 framework comes hot on the heels of our contract with DWP to outsource its desktop estate.

As HM Government strives to make savings and efficiencies through its use of IT, we are proud to be helping departments and agencies across the public sector transform the way they manage the desktop environment as well as making some real and tangible cost savings.
