Tech consultancy wins contract with Government health and security agency

Product delivery and technology consultancy, Burendo, has been appointed as technical delivery partner on a multi-million pound contract with the United Kingdom Health Security Agency (UKHSA).

The UKHSA is responsible for protecting society in England and safeguarding public health from the impact of serious health threats.

It is modernising its IT operations to strengthen the UK’s resilience against such threats, which include infectious diseases, chemical and biological incidents, radiological risks, and nuclear threats.

Leeds-based Burendo will serve as the UKHSA’s trusted development operations (DevOps) partner.

This three-year agreement is designed to deliver a major step forward to advance the UKHSA’s DevOps capabilities. Burendo will provide hands-on expertise to ensure the UKHSA can cope with any incident, no matter how severe.

Glenn Crossley, co-founder of Burendo, said: “We are immensely proud to be chosen as the UKHSA’s partner of choice for the delivery and support of their critical technology solutions.

“Being awarded this contract is testament to the exceptional dedication and expertise of our entire team, who are consistently recognised by clients for delivering outstanding results.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with the UKHSA to advise and help them deliver crucial work to protect the UK public.”

Giulio Saggese, deputy head of development and operations at the UKHSA, added: We worked in collaboration with Burendo to create a multi-threat dashboard which is instrumental in helping us to understand the infectious disease landscape.

“Burendo delivered a fantastic piece of work, and we are thrilled to be working with the team again. We’re looking forward to growing our partnership and seeing what more we can achieve together.”
