Nuclear Decommissioning Authority awards £140m IT outsourcing contract to Atos

Hopes to save 30 percent of costs by consolidating IT infrastructure

The body responsible for nuclear decommissioning in the UK has awarded a £140 million IT outsourcing contract to Atos.

The Nuclear Decommissioning Authority's (NDA) procurement arm, Shared Services Alliance (SSA), awarded the five-year contract to Atos, which covers all IT services for Sellafield, Magnox, National Nuclear Laboratories and Low Level Waste Repository.

It expects to save more than 30 percent over five years by consolidating and modernising the IT infrastructure across the entire estate.

Keith Gibson, project manager at the SSA, said: "[This contract] signals a period of significant change with the new contract having a strong focus on investment and future benefits realisation.

"It will reduce costs by simplifying IT support arrangements and provides a solid platform for future developments."

Atos will provide services including networking, desktop, applications, hosting, service integration and management to more than 18,000 end users located at over 30 locations.
