The UK Health Security Agency has signed a £20m deal to fulfil its needs for Microsoft productivity tools and server technologies for the next three years.

Newly published commercial documents reveal that a contract came into effect on 1 April and will run until 31 March 2025. The deal, which covers the “provision of Microsoft 365 licences and associated services”, represents a renewal and unification of previous contracts awarded by the entities which UKHSA has subsumed and replaced: Public Health England; NHS Test and Trace; and the Joint Biosecurity Centre.

The engagement, under the terms of Microsoft’s enterprise agreement programme for large customers, also benefits from pricing agreed in a memorandum of understanding between the vendor and government, the text of the contract indicates.

The contract was awarded via the G-Cloud 12 framework to Microsoft reseller partner Trustmarque. As part of the York-based firm’s “managed support service” for Microsoft 365 technologies, UKHSA will benefit from “customised cloud reporting [and] a bespoke, agile management platform”, according to listings on the government’s Digital Marketplace platform.

The contract indicates that an estimated £5.99m – plus VAT – will be spent during the first year of the contract, with the deal worth £20m over its lifespan.

Quantities and prices of the licences covered by the contract were redacted from the published document.
