The Government of the Commonwealth of Dominica (GoCD) has chosen ICT managed services provider Digicel as the winning bidder to provide the rebuild of the Telecommunications and ICT services to the GoCD, the company said.
With the competitive bid process complete, Digicel has been selected for a 15-year term.
The awarding of this contract to Digicel comes upon approval from Cabinet after accepting the recommendation of the Bid Evaluation Committee.
As Dominica works to recover from the devastating effects of Hurricane Maria in September last year and focuses its renewal efforts on becoming a world climate resilient nation, this landmark agreement sees Digicel working in close partnership with the Government to deliver a highly resilient, state of the art network infrastructure, at a standard never seen before in the region.
Digicel will undertake the rebuilding and provisioning of telecommunications, Internet, data, cloud and other ICT services to all of the Government sites – including every Government office, school, community centre and health centre, across the length and breadth of the island.
Digicel Group is a total communications and entertainment provider with operations in 31 markets in the Caribbean, Central America and Asia Pacific. After 17 years of operation, total investment to date stands at over USUSD 5 billion worldwide.
