(SHARECAST) – BT has cemented its role as the government’s main suppliers of network IT services despite swingeing budgetary cuts, following talks with Cabinet Office minister Francis Maude.
It signed a memorandum of understanding with the government after discussions on efficiencies that it says will help the government cut costs. All of its contracts with central government remain in place, it says.
BT said it will help the government make changes that ‘will enable wider economies of scale while yielding genuine benefits to government.’
