CACI has been accredited to supply consultancy services under the Government's new ICT Consultancy, Catalist Framework Agreement.
CACI is able to provide ICT Consultancy services under Category 2, IT Architecture and Design including Networking and Communications, and will be one of 11 organisations capable of supplying consultancy services in this category.
The ICT Consultancy Framework offers consultancy services for a range of ICT requirements and under the IT Architecture and Design Lot, CACI can offer professional advice and guidance as well as expertise for the collation of reports and recommendations.
The framework has been designed to simplify government procurement by giving public sector bodies access to accredited suppliers therefore reducing the amount of time and resources required during the procurement process. The Catalist brand is designed to unify the framework agreements under one
identifiable and recognisable brand name. Catalist incorporates older framework agreements including GCat and S-Cat until they expire and new framework agreements including ICT Consultancy.
Commenting on the contract win, Jeet Khaira, Managing Director of CACI's Information Systems Division said, "We are very pleased to be awarded a position on Catalist and look forward to bringing our considerable expertise in information technology in the Government market sector to assist existing
and new customers. Catalist is an excellent new vehicle to simplify and move government procurement forward."
The ICT Consultancy framework agreement is expected to go live on 25th May 2006, after which CACI will manage any Catalist-driven ICT Consultancy procurement projects through a dedicated Framework Contracts Office.
