HMRC wants ‘more for less’ from Capgemini

(By Tola Sargeant, 30th October 2009, 10:30am) There’s more evidence of the UK public sector putting pressure on IT suppliers to help it reduce costs this morning with news that HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) has revised its Aspire contract with Capgemini and major subcontractors Fujitsu and Accenture. HMRC has committed to channel all core external IT spend through Aspire, which runs until 2017, while the suppliers have agreed to save HMRC £110m a year – that’s in addition to the £70m per annum savings committed to in 2007. We can expect to see many similar contract revisions over the next few months as other government departments look for ways to reduce costs in the face of budget cuts.
