*UKHotViewsExtra* Agilisys triumphant at States of Guernsey

Agilisys logoThe procurement process has been ongoing for more than two years. But, finally, the States of Guernsey has announced the preferred bidder for its Future Digital Services contract.

At the final hurdle, the bidders were Fujitsu and Agilisys (DXC had also been involved in the bidding at an earlier stage; the States had also considered an inhouse alternative model). It was a battle between a Japanese-headquartered global IT services firm and a UK-headquartered, and UK-focused, mid-sized IT services firm.

The latter - Agilisys - has come out on top, securing preferred supplier status for the ten-year contract. Preparatory work is already underway, with full delivery to commence in August. Details of the financial aspects of the programme are expected to be disclosed formally in early May when a Policy Letter is formally lodged with States Deputies, but reports suggest a value of c£200m over ten years.
