The Post Office has tendered for a "full range" of IT services in order to support front and back-end operations at its branches and online following its separation from the Royal Mail Group.
The contract includes lots to provide end user computing, network services, applications, infrastructure and data centres. The Post Office will also appoint a service integrator to "combine and manage the technical services provided by the delivery tower contractors". The Post Office told Information Age that the notice is not a tender for new IT systems, but rather for the consolidation of its vendor landscape, "implementing an industry standard Towers model that will support our current and future IT services."
