The Learning and Skills Council (LSC) has awarded Xansa a two year IT contract extension worth £24m.
Xansa has worked with the LSC since March 2001 and the extension will cover IT systems development, support, and related services.
Xansa will support management information activities and systems that will allow the LSC to provide a smoother and more efficient funding and planning process for post-16 education in Britain.
David Russell, LSC director of resources said, “This agreement allows the LSC to focus its energies on providing the joined up information and services that will deliver the transformation of skills that the British economy needs now and in the future.
Ovum Holway analyst Samad Masood said, the original LSC contract was worth £12m in its first year and that the value of the extension – worth another £12m each year – contrasted with the current trend “for contracts to decrease in value as they mature.”
