New IT services contract

HM Treasury has signed a contract with Fujitsu to provide information and communication technology services.  The services will be delivered as part of the Cabinet Office Public Sector Flex shared service framework; a shared services solution which offers benefits and economies of scale across Government.

The Fujitsu transformation programme will provide new solutions to both HM Treasury and the Office of Government Commerce and will modernise the Treasury’s IT systems which are at the end of their life.  Fujitsu will also be providing support and service facilities that will deliver a more flexible and resilient ICT service over the five years of the contract. 

The new shared services platform will help the Treasury further improve its efficiency and business continuity arrangements. 

The new solutions will conform to the Cabinet Office’s Greening Government ICT principles and will reduce the Treasury’s energy consumption.
