10th January 2008 – Infoterra Ltd, a provider of geospatial products and services, has been awarded a framework agreement under OGCbuying.solutions’ Catalist Geographical Information Services and Solutions framework (GISS), an arrangement that provides a streamlined procurement route for public sector bodies. Under the new Catalist GISS framework, Infoterra has been awarded framework agreements in the GI Mapping Services and GI data supply solutions categories.
The Catalist procurement service is managed by OGCbuying.solutions, an executive agency of the Treasury’s Office of Government Commerce (OGC). Securing accreditation on a Catalist framework agreement confirms Infoterra as one of the leading suppliers of GIS data and services.
“Procurement under Catalist saves time and money for public sector bodies, allowing them to select a supplier without having to go through the process of pre-qualification. Selecting a service provider, such as Infoterra, means they will be working with a risk-free GIS partner that not only meets, but exceeds all the standards for professional GIS services and associated products,” commented Dr Andy Wells, Director of Sales for Infoterra Ltd. “Over the last three years we’ve found that Catalist has been an important route for the Public Sector market to work with Infoterra. Since first being awarded framework agreements under Catalist, our clients have used the framework for almost £10 million worth of procurement.”
