Danish state awards major telephony contracts  

Telecompany Sonofon is the main winner as the Danish state awards contracts worth DKK 1.5 billion

Denmark's state procurement executive and real estate agency (Statens og Kommunernes Indkøbs Service / Slots- og Ejendomsstyrelsen) have entered framework agreements on tele and data solutions totalling DKK 1.5 billion (USD 225 million). Telecompany Sonofon is the main winner in the largest invitation to tender on public teleservices that Denmark has so far seen. US-Norwegian owned Sonofon gained a two year contract to supply fixed net telephony to all state institutions including ministries, defence establishments, police, customs and inland revenue.


Agreements have also been entered with a number of other companies including Cybercity, Danske Telecom, DMdata, Orange, TDC, Tele2 and Telia. The agreements will save the public sector up to 15% on telephony, internet and broadband connections. Public institutions will also save time because they do not need to make separate invitations to tender. The new contracts become effective from 1 September 2003. The news is reported by Computerworld online.
