Capita lands extension to IT contract with schools
Capita plc has secured a two-year extension worth £50m to provide managed IT services to schools in Northern Ireland.
The contract will see the outsourcing and professional services giant continue its Education Network for Northern Ireland contract with the option of a further one-year extension.
Among Capita's services to schools is a managed IT service, including the provision of its SIMS management information system. According to Capita, the service helps schools operate efficiently.
Capita's contract forms a part of Northern Ireland's C2k programme, which provides infrastructure and services to support the use of ICT in schools.
Jon Lewis, Capita's chief executive, said: "This extension is a testament to Capita's delivery of the most significant digital transformation project in education in Northern Ireland.
"We are proud to be working with 21,000 schools in the UK, delivering the next generation of education technology to bring positive change to teachers, students and parents."
