Sprint Canada Inc., a provider of residential and business telecommunications services, today announced that it has renewed a two-year contract with Approvisionnements Montral sant et services sociaux, to provide long distance, toll free service, and calling cards to 1,000 health and social service organizations in Qubec.

The value of the two-year contract is estimated to be $2.6 million.

The government department was established to acquire goods and services for all health and social service organizations in the Greater Montreal and Laval regions. The corporation also purchases goods and services on behalf of other health and social service organizations when greater economies of scale can be achieved, as is the case with telecommunication services.

Sprint Canada began providing long distance, toll free and calling card services to Quebec’s health and social service organizations through Approvisionnements – Montreal sant et services sociaux, in 1994. In 2000, Sprint Canada was again awarded a contract to provide service through a public tendering process.

The long distance, toll free and calling card services will be supported by a custom billing and reporting system that will allow the user organizations to customize their reports, manage their telecommunications costs and maintain their systems in an efficient manner.
