Capita Symonds and telent technology services have announced the launch of a new traffic technology services partnership which has been awarded a framework agreement by Government Procurement Service in all 11 lots of the new Traffic Management Technology Framework.

The new framework has been created to allow customers to efficiently and cost-effectively procure a wide range of traffic management solutions, services and products. Capita Symonds and telent were the only bidders to be successful in all 11 lots, which include the supply of traffic management solutions; traffic signals and ramp metering; street lighting services; and traffic management research and consultancy.

The new partnership is part of a wider collaboration between Capita Symonds and telent's traffic technology business which will bring to market a number of innovative cost saving propositions.

"This partnership combines telent’s market-leading traffic technology and services solutions with Capita Symonds’ extensive design, infrastructure and outsourcing solutions” commented Keith Higginbotham, General Manager of telent's Traffic Technology business. “Our appearance on all 11 lots allows public sector customers to purchase the full suite of traffic management technology solutions from one source; helping simplify public sector procurement and bring further efficiencies to the public sector supply chain."

John Southgate, Executive Director of Capita Symonds added: "Both Capita Symonds and telent have long and well established reputations for individual service excellence in this market. We fully recognise the very real and increasing pressure on public resources, and this exciting new partnership means customers will now have access to the combined strengths of both companies bringing real innovation, thought leadership and huge additional value to the marketplace."
