Consortium with Cegeka awarded European Union Aviation Safety Agency contract in Germany


30 September 2020

The e-Kare consortium, a collaboration between European IT company Cegeka and service provider Serco, has been awarded a framework contract by the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). EASA chose the e-Kare consortium following a European tender, and will outsource several of its IT services to e-Kare. This contract covers a four-year period and has a maximum value of 28.1 million EUR split into two lots.

e-Kare will provide IT consultancy services to strengthen EASA’s IT capacity. ‘This involves supporting the existing IT infrastructure, combined with the development and roll-out of new IT services,’ says Jean-Yves Denis, European Institutions Business Unit Manager at Cegeka.

‘We are confident that with our vast knowledge and experience within both the European institutions and the aviation sector, we can be a major help to EASA in the development and implementation of their IT,’ says Stijn Bijnens, CEO of Cegeka. ‘For Cegeka, winning this contract is an important step in the further expansion of our European footprint,’ Stijn Bijnens, CEO of Cegeka says.

European institutions are key partners of Cegeka

EASA, headquartered in Cologne, Germany, was founded in 2002, and is the centrepiece of the European Union's strategy for aviation safety. Its mission is to promote the highest common standards of safety and environmental protection in civil aviation. The Agency develops common safety and environmental rules at the European level.

‘For several years now, Cegeka has been committed to supporting European institutions in the field of IT. The EASA cooperation marks another milestone – Belgium and Germany working together across borders. Cegeka has been working for the European institutions for more than six years now. During that time, our team has grown into a group of more than 140 employees,’ says Jean-Yves Denis. ‘In order to be able to support the European institutions even more effectively, we have opened two new offices in Brussels,’ concludes Stijn Bijnens.
