Atos, an international IT services company, has today (19 April) announced that it will lead a team comprising Vega, a Selex ES company (Finmeccanica group) and Information Services Group (ISG) to become the UK Ministry of Defence’s Defence Communications Networks Services Strategic Partner (DCNS SP).

The contract is for £25m over three years with potential to extend to seven and will see the team working closely with the UK MOD’s Defence Equipment and Support Information Systems & Services (ISS) team. The DCNS programme will develop the services and organisational strategy for future information and communications systems delivering continuity of service, value for money and enhancing the information services that support UK Armed Forces operations worldwide.

As Strategic Partner, the Atos team will work jointly with the ISS Programmes to enable the DCNS programme meet the objectives of the UK Government’s ICT strategy; enabling more cost effective information solutions whilst maintaining services for the end user and increasing flexibility.

Commenting on the new contract, Ursula Morgenstern, CEO Atos, UK and Ireland, said: “We are immensely pleased that, along with our colleagues in Vega and ISG, we have been selected as the MOD’s DCNS Strategic Partner, and will be able to bring our considerable knowledge of the Defence sector to provide communications solutions that will save the UK MOD money whilst delivering the flexible and specialist systems required.”
