Fujitsu flexes its muscles
HM Treasury has struck a five-year deal with Fujitsu to provide a range of IT services.
The services include providing desktop, laptop and multifunctional devices, secure service desk support, data storage and disaster recovery facilities.
It will also deliver a secure remote-working programme for Treasury workers to help improve productivity.
Treasury CIO Karen Delafield said the deal would help deliver a "modern, flexible, secure and resilient ICT service".
Some staff will transfer across from the Treasury to Fujitsu under the Transfer of Undertakings arrangement.
Under the deal Fujitsu will deliver shared services as part of the Cabinet Office's Flex framework.
The Flex framework will see Fujitsu offering shared services to a range of public sector organisations, allowing the public sector to save money by sharing software applications and support and letting civil servants access applications from a range of different devices.
The Treasury is the latest government organisation to access the Flex shared services and joins The Cabinet Office, the Children and Family Court Advisory and Support Service, Crossrail and Office for National Statistics.
