TeliaSonera signs framework agreement on IT integrators

TeliaSonera has made a new procurement agreement to meet its need for administration and development of applications and IT solutions. During last year, TeliaSonera Sweden had framework agreements with just over 20 IT/ Telecom suppliers. As 2004 approached, the objective has been to extend the agreement onto a Nordic level.
Apart from extending the agreement, an additional objective for 2004 has been to focus group purchasing on the selected suppliers, creating synergies and reducing the proportion of time-based resource purchases. TeliaSonera prefers to invest in the procurement of defined projects and equipment at fixed prices, thus reducing risk exposure and gaining better cost control.
The selected suppliers are:
A-Ware Oy, AcandoFrontec AB, Accenture AB, Cap Gemini Telecom Media & Networks Sweden AB, 3C Data Oy, Cyber Com Consulting Group Scandinavia AB, EDS Finland Oy, Elan IT Resources AB, Ementor ASA, eWork Scandinavia AB, Hewlett-Packard Oy, IBM Svenska AB, Infologigruppen Norr AB, Infosys Technologies Ltd, IT-Arkitekterna Konsult i Stockholm AB, Keypro Oy, Ki Consulting & Solution AB, KnowIT AB, Nordic Business Management Systems AB, Nixu Oy, Novo Group Oyj, Satama Finland Oy, SchlumbergerSema AB, Sigma AB, Sun Microsystems AB, Syntronic AB, SysOpen Oy, Tata Consultancy Services Sverige AB, Teleca AB, TietoEnator Oy, Validation AB, Wipro Ltd and Wm-data AB.
The agreement is in force from the start of 2004 and lasts two years.
