The Department of Work and Pensions has awarded a £400m contract to a consortium led by Xerox for printing services.
The consortium, iON, which also includes EDS, Accenture, CEVA Logistic, Remploy, The Stationery Office and TNT, will provide services to DWP for seven years.
Under the contract DWP has an option to extend for another three years. The deal will result in substantial savings, the DWP said.
“Xerox and its partners will provide us with a streamlined and coherent solution to DWP’s current and future needs for print, publicity material and associated services. This will give us improved value for money, greater efficiency and a vehicle for continuous improvement,” said David Smith, DWP’s commercial director.
