Corporate services company Hogg Robinson Group has been awarded the contract for the overall travel management for the government of Canada.
The seven year award is the culmination of an extensive three year bidding process.
David Radcliffe, chief executive, HRG, commented: “This is one of the most prestigious accounts in North America and I am delighted to make today’s announcement.
“The process has been rigorous and professional, enabling HRG to demonstrate its expertise and position as a world leading provider of corporate services on a truly international stage.”
The contract includes all commercially available civilian travel requirements for the Canadian Government including the provision of travel services, an online booking tool, a payment card (supplied by BMO Financial Group), and online expense management via HRG group company Spendvision.
“In awarding us their business, the government of Canada has provided us with an opportunity to demonstrate our talent, experience and knowledge as well as our commitment to service excellence.
“We will provide an efficient travel service that meets the functional needs of a broad and diverse user community and also reduces the administrative burden of making and accounting for travel arrangements.
“I am incredibly proud of this award and I truly believe that HRG will successfully deliver and fully meet the requirements of the Government of Canada,” concluded Radcliffe.
