Iron Mountain is the sole supplier recommended by the Government Procurement Service for the provision of off-site information management services.
Boston-based information management company Iron Mountain has been named as a preferred supplier within the United Kingdom’s new £200 million (US$307.4 million) document management framework, a category that includes records storage, digitization and shredding services. Iron Mountain is the sole supplier recommended by the Government Procurement Service (GPS) for the provision of off-site information management services, which comprise 40 percent of the framework’s value.
"The Government Procurement Service is delighted to welcome Iron Mountain onto the new document storage and related services framework," says Liz Baldwin, GPS category lead for document management. "Iron Mountain was chosen because of their demonstrated experience in managing and safeguarding public sector records, their quality and range of services and their stated ongoing commitment to security and innovation. This framework gives Iron Mountain a real opportunity to deliver savings to both central government and the wider public sector."
The new Document Storage and Related Services Framework has been created as part of the U.K. government's pledge to deliver efficient and more effective procurement. Iron Mountain's portfolio of services will be available to all central and local governments, the National Health Service (NHS), educational institutions, the emergency services and many other public sector bodies across the UK.
"We are committed to helping the government better use information and save money in the process," says Simon Duddy, commercial director (public sector) at Iron Mountain. "We have an established record of working with central government, local authorities and NHS Trusts to develop and deliver world-class services across the public sector. We will build on this experience to provide our public sector customers with new services and innovations to meet their fast-changing information needs, while delivering clear cost savings."
