Fujitsu has won a contract in Finland to deliver software development services for Helsingin Seudun Liikenne (Helsinki Region Transport) – as part of a tendering process.
Fujitsu Finland will become the primary supplier in the field of software development and the third supplier in the Business Intelligence and Data Engineering area.
HSL, a joint municipal authority, is carrying out a review of its IT environment and developing several new applications.
“We want to promote a modern approach and operating models both in software development and in other areas of information technology and other technology,” says Seppo Perkio, acting CIO of HSL.
HSL’s framework contract tendering considered both work from the EU/EEA and the opportunity for trainees and young experts to work as part of development teams.
“Fujitsu offers the right number of software professionals for HSL’s application development flexibly for the roles needed at any given time. Our European production model, complemented by local expertise, enables top professionals in the field to work in Finnish projects at a reasonable price,” says Jouko Seppa, Head of Consulting and Professional Services at Fujitsu Finland.
A total of 11 companies were included in the framework agreement in order of priority. The selected suppliers will work under the guidance of HSL’s technology units and business units in a multi-vendor environment from February 2023.
The framework agreement does not have a minimum limit in euros for the size of projects or invoicing. The size of orders can vary significantly. As a whole, the framework agreement represents a significant undertaking for Finland, with the total value of future projects estimated to be as much as EUR 104 million over eight years.
