Amor Group has won a three year contract to act as the technical supplier for the Scottish Government.
Under the deal, which was for an undisclosed sum and has two optional 12-month extensions, Amor will work with the government’s Information Services and Information Systems (ISIS) division.
ISIS provides a common platform known as SCOTS, which supports over 10,000 users over 150 sites across the region, using more than 10,000 devices including laptops, desktops and mobile devices.
Amor will deliver the SCOTS Connect range of managed services, which will help public servants in Scotland access shared services and collaborate across the network.
Jimmy Lumsden, public services senior business unit director at Amor, said: “This is a significant contract for Amor Group’s Public Services sector. We are pleased to be supporting the Scottish Government on such a significant aspect of its IT infrastructure.
"This contract adds to our already solid foundations for future growth across the Scottish public sector and will also be beneficial to us as we aim to expand our public sector activities across the whole of the UK in 2013 and beyond.
He added: “This win shows that there is a real appetite to look beyond big companies to achieve improved flexibility, responsiveness and value. We have a very strong proven track record of successful working across the Scottish Government and we are looking forward to building further on this over the next few years.”
Andy McClintock CTO at the Scottish Government, added: “Amor Group provides a significant pool of highly skilled, permanently employed and experienced staff in Scotland. They are also in a position to offer a very flexible and responsive solution to what we require.”
