RM pulled a rabbit out of the hat for analysts who came calling on the company yesterday in the form of a £30m contract to supply all the ICT products and services for schools in South Lanarkshire.

The gig will not have come entirely as a surprise to the assembled analysts, as RM was annointed preferred bidder in February. So we guess it would have been more newsworthy if the company had not been awarded the contract, after all, especially as RM as been the incumbent supplier in South Lanarkshire for four years.

The new deal lasts for seven years. ®
