Mark Goodwin, director at CBC, said he was delighted to announce the deal with the Greater Manchester-based council, which had come after a “tough” bid battle.
“This is a great win for CBC, particularly in such a quiet market and bearing in mind how hard it is to acquire public sector contracts in this environment,” Goodwin said.
CBC would aim to provide a quality, cost-effective blend of commodity IT hardware and services to the council.
According to the publictenders.net website, the deal was awarded to CBC primarily on price, with non-price issues given 40 per cent weight in the final decision. Seven other companies put in a bid for the same contract.
Goodwin said the Sheffield City Centre-based firm also has worked for
emergency services, schools, other councils and the NHS.
