Modis Belgium, an it service provider, has a four-year contract to provide approximately 1,200 it professionals to work for the European Commission. The Brussels regional news Platform Bruzz reports that Modis Belgium, based in Groot-Biliardine (Flemish Brabant), has signed what it says, “the largest framework agreement for it services, ever signed by an institution of the European Union”.
Modis won the tender and as such will provide the lion’s share of the 1,200 IT experts to the European Commission and a number of European agencies.
Modis is part of the Swiss-owned Adecco group and currently employs around 10,000 IT experts across Europe. Its customers include IBM, Ericsson, Telenet and the Flemish Government and civil service.
A Modis spokesperson told Bruzz that “Modis’ trump card is that it can call on its other branches elsewhere in Europe and as such isn’t constrained by the shortage of IT experts on the Belgian labour market”.
