CGI Leverages Logica Acquisition into $100M IT Infrastructure Deal with National Health Service; Trevor Shipman Comments

CGI-logoCGI Group (NYSE: GIB) will build an information technology infrastructure for the National Health Service Foundation Trust in London under a $101 million contract, Computerworld UK reported Thursday.

Derek du Preez writes CGI will supply service desk, data networks, desktops, laptops, devices, unified communications tools, infrastructure, videoconferencing equipment and printing services to NHS.

The firm inked the deal with NHS nearly a year after it purchased U.K.-based IT services firm Logica for close to $3 billion and du Preez indicated CGI’s winning component was previously Logica.

“This is an exciting time for the trust. The appointment of CGI is a critical milestone in delivering a major ICT Strategy which will fundamentally improve the IT and systems we use, ” said Trevor Shipman, finance director at Central and North West London NHS Foundation Trust.

CGI will also work to implement and manage services, as well as train NHS personnel on using information and communications technology over the next five years, according to the report.
