West Hertfordshire Hospitals NHS Trust has awarded CGI a £25 million deal for ICT infrastructure services.

The ‘ICT Infrastructure Improvement Programme’ contract covers a range of services including service management, data networks, service desk, data management, desktops, laptops and other end user devices.

It will also cover unified communications, infrastructure, videoconferencing, telephony, printing and application hosting, according to a notice in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU).

The contract will run for five years with options to extend it for a further two years. The notice adds that the contract includes scope to expand the range of services and potentially double the number of users.

CGI, which won the contract over four other potential suppliers, will be responsible for providing services to approximately 4,000 staff across three main sites and one satellite site.

The OJEU notice adds that roughly 25 percent of the work is likely to be sub-contracted.

CGI has won a number of contracts to provide ICT infrastructure services to NHS bodies in recent months.

For example in December it won a five-year £62 million deal with Central and North West London NHS Foundation Trust and last August it signed a seven-year contract with Solent NHS Trust.
