UN picks Unisys

The United Nations Development Programme has signed a $27.5 million, six-year contract with systems integrator Unisys Corp. to provide infrastructure and enterprise application management services.

The contract also includes three of UNDP's partner organizations. Unisys and Corio Inc., a subcontractor, will deliver a full enterprise application suite, including financial systems, human resources and customer relationship management applications.

"UNDP and its partners require a secure and reliable enterprise system," said Norman Sanders, chief information officer at UNDP. "We have selected Unisys for its global delivery capability, predictable and affordable economics and support of Corio's Applications on Demand platform."
