Five-year £15m Ministry of Defence contract win

Chamber member Total Integrated Solutions Limited (TIS) has won a five-year support contract, valued at over £15m, from the UK Ministry of Defence, Ships, Maritime Combat Systems (MCS) tam.

The contract, for the in-service support of primary internal communications and closed-circuit television equipment fitted to existing Royal Navy warships, and the CCTV of the future Queen Elizabeth aircraft carriers, runs until 2022, with an optional two year extension period.

Chris Lewis, Managing Director Defence Division at the fire, security and communication specialist, based on Oakham Business Park, Mansfield, said: "The award of this important competitive contract is a testament to our Division Tender Compliance team, our excellent performance on previous support contracts and, in particular, our flexible approach to deliver on time and to budget.

"The contract provides a long-term stable income for the Defence Division, underpinning its future performance."

TIS has previously held several short-term contracts covering some aspects of this requirement. The new award brings these services under one longer-term contract, delivering improved efficiencies and highlighting smarter support strategies.

To win the contract, TIS competed against some of the biggest suppliers in the defence industry. The win underpins the firms’ position with the Royal Navy as a principal contractor, offering support and system integration to legacy platforms with minimal impact.
