State of New Jersey renews Disaster Recovery Services contract
The State of New Jersey, one of Bull's largest and most important customers in the U.S., renewed a Disaster Recovery (DR) Services contract with Integris, Bull's outsourcing services division, this time for $2.5 million over three years.
The contract, now at its midpoint, runs through June of 2008, and calls for Bull/Integris to supply DR services to the New Jersey Office of Information Technology in support of its customer, the Department of Human Services/Division of Family Development. Among New Jersey's most critical agencies, the Department of Human Services is responsible for providing a variety of health and benefits programs for the State's neediest and most vulnerable citizens, including children and senior citizens.
Under the terms of the agreement, Bull/Integris will provide disaster recovery services to New Jersey using technology in its Phoenix, Arizona facility. In the event a disaster renders the State's IT equipment inoperable, Bull/Integris will, within 24 hours, provide back up use on its DR System in its Phoenix facility to this major customer.
