TfL plans ICT services framework worth up to £80m

Transport for London (TfL) has revealed details of a new ICT services framework that could be worth up to £80 million.

The agreement will see up to five suppliers provide the organisation standard hardware and software products, licences, printers, ICT consumables and services that may include implementation, installation, training and consultancy.

TfL is currently planning to have the framework in place for two years, but has reserved the right to extend this by up to two further one year periods – so a potential four years in total.

An online contract notice states that once this agreement is established, TfL will also look to set up a ‘catalogue service’ for its most commonly used commoditised hardware, software products and associated services.

In other news, TfL recently revealed that it has earmarked up to £54 million for the installation of new Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems. It is looking for a single supplier to design, install and migrate a new system on the London Underground network, as well as maintain and periodically refresh it.
