Northgate Managed Services has won a £6.5 million contract to deliver ICT services for academy chain E-ACT.
The deal will see Northgate provide a range of services, including data centres, supply management services and cloud services to all of E-ACT’s free schools and academies.
E-ACT’s director of ICT, Chris Meaney, said: “The contract requires a supplier with extensive experience in education as well as the infrastructure and resources available to proactively manage the individual requirements of each academy.”
Meanwhile, Northgate’s chief executive Andy Ross commented: “The award of the E-ACT contract is a huge endorsement of our education work to date and can only help to broaden our experience in this sector.
“We are all very much looking forward to meeting and working with the academies, learning more about their ICT needs and how we can help to create learning rich environments.”
E-ACT named Northgate as its preferred supplier in January.
