The University for Industry (whoops! sorry - though it still carries the initials UfI, it is now to be called LearnDirect) has awarded the contract for its nation-wide information and communications infrastructure to a Logica-led consortium. Valued at £14 million over threee years, the contract covers systems development, implementation, programme management, Web site design, Web and application hosting in addition to ongoing support. Along with Logica, the consortium includes Cable & Wireless, David Jennings Associates, Fretwell Downing and Interactive Bureau. The consortium will be responsible for linking together 1,000 UfI learning centres with its four regional call centres. The UfI development plan is available at: http://www.ufiltd.co.uk/ufi
