“Atos Origin in trailblazing agreement with UK Government”

London, 10 September 2010

Atos Origin, an international IT services company, today announced it is the first supplier to sign a memorandum of understanding with the UK Government following the negotiations launched by the Minister for the Cabinet Office, Francis Maude, in July. The agreement marks the start of a new single-client approach to engagement with central UK Government.

Atos Origin, a longstanding and valued partner to UK Government, will continue to deliver all its existing IT contracts to UK Government, and will look for further business opportunities, building on the agreed centralised approach. It will also resume a number of projects in IT and outsourced operations that were placed on hold while the negotiations took place.

Keith Wilman, UK CEO for Atos Origin said: “These important negotiations mark the start of a new era for Atos Origin. We have the expertise to drive transformation through innovative commercial and technology solutions and fully support the UK Government.”
