Spanish systems integrator Indra has been awarded two outsourcing contracts, each with a separate Colombian government body, worth more than US$26mn in total, the company said in a statement.
The first contract is with family welfare institute ICBF and entails a temporary joint venture with a local telecommunications company.
The project is for the global outsourcing of the technological infrastructure (table of services, email, video conferencing, application and database administration, security, data center and LAN-WAN-VoIP communications) for three years.
It also includes the technological renewal of the ICBF's entire platform in Colombia, which provides coverage to more than 9,500 users in over 300 cities.
The ICBF is part of the administrative body for social prosperity. It was created in 1968 to address issues such as nutritional deficiency, family disintegration and instability, and abandoned children. Today, more than 10mn Colombians receive its services.
The second contract was signed with SAYP, a consortium of the Fiduprevisora and Fiducoldex fiduciaries to administer the Colombian health system's funds. It entails supplying hardware and software and managing all of the entity's applications and support for five years.
SAYP was recently created to manage the Fosyga solidarity and guarantee fund, which is backed by the Colombian ministry of health and social protection.
