Topaz agrees card deal with State
The three-year deal has been signed with the Office of Government Procurement and is worth an estimated €20m. The framework agreement will see Topaz supply fuel charge card services to a range of public sector bodies within the OGP.
The figure of €20m is net of Government duties, levies and VAT. The agreement will be in place for three years with an option to extend for a further year until 2018.
The deal will apply to the entire public service, including An Garda Siochana, the Office of Public Works, the Prison Service and the local authority sector.
“The agreement is not just good news for Topaz and its 1,600 employees but also for the 4,000 people employed through our dealer network and thousands of employees in other oil companies covered by this agreement,” notes Topaz’s Commercial Director Liam Mulcahy.
Meanwhile, former Taoiseach Brian Cowen is one of six new members appointed to the Topaz Energy Group board.
