Staten og Kommunernes Indkøbsservice A/S (SKI), the procurement organization for the public sector in Denmark, has selected Atea as supplier on a large frame agreement for communication products. The frame agreement, called ‘50.07 Kommunikationsprodukter og -løsninger’, covers the Danish central government, 4 regions, and 73 municipalities. In addition to these government organizations that are obliged to purchase via 50.07, other public sector customers may also use the agreement on a voluntary basis.
The frame agreement consists of three parts: Unified Communications and telephony, Network, and IT security. Atea has been chosen as one of three vendors which are eligible for all three parts of the frame agreement.
The frame agreement has a two-year term, with a two years option. Total purchases under the frame agreement are expected to be DKK 1,700 million across all vendors. Atea has previously been a supplier of communications products to the public sector on the frame agreements which preceded this new agreement.
“We are very pleased to announce that SKI has selected Atea as a supplier of communications products to the Danish public sector on the new 50.07 frame agreement. Secure and reliable communications is essential to the functioning of any organization. Atea is committed to providing its customers with communications solutions of the highest quality and value," commented Morten Felding, Managing Director, Atea Denmark.
