Northgate Public Services announces 4 year partnership with the Information Commissioner’s Office
25 March 2013
Northgate Public Services has been selected to partner the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) for the supply of its IT services. From July 2013, Northgate will deliver two fully managed service contracts covering IT infrastructure and the management of the desktop environment.
As well as continuing to seek innovative ways to deliver ‘more for less’ from their IT infrastructure, the partnership will aim to provide an agile and flexible service on which the ICO can evolve its business processes.
The ICO has focused on its underlying IT infrastructure as the key to helping its staff deliver a better overall service. Northgate Public Services will play an instrumental role in this process by handing its network, server, storage and application management, as well as supporting and managing the ICO’s desktop assets. The new contracts, which will formally begin in July, will run for a minimum of three and four years respectively, with optional extensions up to two years each.
Daniel Benjamin, ICO’s Director of Corporate Services:
“Northgate Public Services’ proposal offered the best fit for our managed services. It has already shown a keen interest in working with us to implement the ICO’s IT and business strategy, and it produced a quality proposal for each of the two contracts whilst responding to our requirement of ‘more for less’. We look forward to a successful and productive partnership.”
Joe Bradley, Executive Director, Services
“We are proud to announce our partnership with the Information Commissioner’s Office. As their role develops further in defining best practice in data governance, we are looking forward to being able to work with them as a business partner and IT provider to ensure that their IT environment continues to effectively support the needs of their staff and other ICO stakeholders.”
