British officials have put key UK suppliers, which includes 2bm, on a fast track to win £400m of business building and running data centres for government offices and public bodies. A public procurement body, YPO, has set up a framework agreement under European law which gives 2bm the right to do quick deals with public bodies. The arrangement covers the whole computing supply chain – from consulting, designing, building and operating data centres, to networks, security, disaster recovery and support services.
