Combat fraud and increase customer satisfaction

ITNET has won a £83m deal to handle the web hosting infrastructure for The Cabinet Office. The five-year contract is the biggest in its history and its first major Central Government win, the company said today in a press release. The contract contains a provision for a two-year extension.

ITNET is not taking on any staff under TUPE regulations and says that discussions over purchase or otherwise of assets are continuing with the Government.
Neither ITNET or the Cabinet Office is saying who the incumbent(s) that is or are being replaced.

The gigs starts today and will see ITNET consolidate the Government Gateway, the Knowledge Network, and Delivering on the Promise (DotP), a pan-government content management system, onto a single managed service. Other departments will make use of this hosting capability in the future, The Cabinet Office says.

ITNET is best-known for its outsourcing work in the local government, a sector which accounts for more than half of its turnover. Once upon a time, the Birmingham-based company was the inhouse IT business of Cadburys Schweppes. ®
