The Scottish Criminal Case Review Commission (SCCRC) is cutting IT costs by moving to a shared services model with other government bodies.
The SCCRC, which reviews and investigates allegations of miscarriages of justice, has signed a two-year contract with Atos Origin to share services with Skills Development Scotland and Scottish Enterprise.
Atos will provide a range of IT services including service desk, desktop support, networks management, data centre and security services.
Damien Yeates, CEO of Skills Development Scotland, said the move will drive productivity and cost-savings. "We believe this is a great example of collaborative working in the public sector to deliver higher value services at the best value," he said.
