BT Wins Cloud Contracts with the European Commission

BT has been awarded two new contracts by the European Commission to deliver public and private cloud services across 52 major European institutions, agencies and bodies - including the European Parliament, the European Council and the European Defence Agency.

Both framework contracts - awarded last December - run for up to four years with a combined worth of more than €24 million. Following execution of the framework contracts, BT will implement the contracted private cloud services, and becomes one of five providers that will compete for public cloud projects.

Corrado Sciolla, President Europe and Global Telecom Markets, BT Global Services, said: “This is a milestone in our journey to be the leading global cloud services integrator, and demonstrates how we minimise the complexity, risks and costs for our customers as they move to the cloud. I’d like to take this opportunity to, once again, thank the EU for putting its trust in BT.”

  • Last August, BT signed another framework contract with the European Commission, with a value of up to €15.2 million over seven year, that included voice services across 21 major European institutions, agencies and bodies. This followed a large framework contract signed in March 2015 - with a maximum value of €55.7 million over five years - for the delivery of dedicated internet access to all major European institutions, agencies and bodies across the 28 member states.
