Accenture wins £22 million UK Ministry of Justice contract
The United Kingdom Ministry of Justice has awarded Accenture a five-year, £22 million contract to implement a new world-class shared services solution to support the management of its human resources, payroll, finance and procurement operations.
The shared service will operate across the Ministry of Justice business network, including Her Majesty’s Courts and Tribunals Service, Her Majesty’s Prison Service and the Ministry of Justice Head Office, creating a common platform and increasing the speed and accuracy of the Ministry’s Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system.
The shared services program is expected to deliver savings of £28 million a year by 2014 and is one of the first pan-departmental shared service solutions in the UK central government.
Accenture has been selected as the overall systems integrator, to design, integrate and deliver the shared service system for over 80,000 employees. Accenture also has been engaged as the service management provider to run and maintain the Shared Services IT Service Desk for the duration of the five-year contract.
Accenture will work collaboratively with the Ministry of Justice and its chosen partners, Steria and Savvis, who will deliver the Oracle Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) application development and the Infrastructure-as-a-Service platform respectively.
The collaborative environment that the Ministry of Justice is creating to manage delivery across multiple suppliers will ensure that expertise is drawn from many parts of the industry and integrated into a coherent solution and service.
