This complex mandate includes the management of critical SAAQ systems such as the call centre and the fire alarm system, as well as the operation, maintenance and repair of mechanical, electrical and control equipment. The contract, whose initial term is three years, includes an addition two-year renewal option, for a total duration of 5 years.
