The expanded Catalist framework agreement follows the original payroll agreement between the HM Treasury and LogicaCMG, originally signed in 2002.
In the past five years, the original membership of 13 participating organisations has grown six fold to 70 members, with LogicaCMG now providing payroll services to a third of central government employees.
Matthew Jones, financial controller at OGCbuying.solutions, said, “Since entering the framework agreement five years ago, LogicaCMG has delivered an outstanding service to public sector organisations and the contract extension is testament to this.
“There are potentially huge benefits to be gained from shifting to a shared services model and we encourage every public sector organisation to consider this approach in order to improve process efficiency and reduce costs,” he said.
The Commons public accounts committee recently published a report that OGCbuying.soutions was not up to the mark when delivering maximum savings to the public sector.
The government recently took the decision to make the procurement arm focus more on central government savings.
