4GLOBAL plc (LON:4GBL), a UK-based data, services and software company focused on major sporting events and the promotion and measurement of physical activity, has announced that it has been awarded a circa $500k contract with the Peruvian government commencing immediately. c$100k of the contract is expected to be delivered and recognised in the current financial year ending 31 March 2022 with the balance due next year.
4GLOBAL has been appointed as one of a team of technical delivery partners (known as the “Koulu Consortium”) to work alongside the UK Government to provide specialised technical assistance to the Peruvian government on a major contract in Peru to create 75 new schools.
As a member of the Koulu Consortium, 4GLOBAL will provide its Sport Intelligence platform, data and know-how to assist in developing an active schools’ framework to ensure the schools are as conducive to activity as possible and helping to activate the schools and connect with local communities.
This is the third UK-to-Peruvian-government arrangement in which 4GLOBAL has been involved, the first of which was within the framework of the Pan American and Para Pan American Games Lima 2019 which provided technical advice and monitoring in the construction of sports infrastructure and service management, considered to be a model for large infrastructure works.
The government-to-government agreement was signed by the British ambassador to Peru, Kate Harrison in representation for the UK Department of International Trade. On signing she said:
“It is an honour that Peru has chosen the UK government and Koulu Consortium as its delivery partner to provide technical assistance in the development of the Bicentennial Schools Special Project. It is a great opportunity to support Peru in the year of its Bicentenary and to continue strengthening our partnership. The project will boost social infrastructure in education – an essential pillar supporting Peru’s development process and investment in its people.”
Eloy Mazon, Chief Executive Officer of 4GLOBAL, commented:
“We are delighted to have yet again been appointed to assist the UK Government providing technical advice on this significant Peruvian schools project and we very much look forward with enthusiasm to working with all parties to create outstanding outcomes. 4GLOBAL’s appointment to this third project reflects the success of earlier projects where some outstanding results were achieved.”
