Taylor Wimpey has signed a £30m, five-year outsourcing contract with LogicaCMG to reduce IT operational costs by 20% by integrating the newly formed housing group's IT systems.
The outsourcing project is aimed at improving IT services, and will focus on common infrastructure services across the newly formed organisation.
The company said a key factor in awarding the contract to LogicaCMG was the company's six-year relationship with George Wimpey.
Taylor Wimpey has also partnered with LogicaCMG, which joins the housing company's IT leadership team.
Paul Caris, chief information officer at Taylor Wimpey, said, "Our challenge following the merger was to provide a consistent service across the enlarged business and to deliver cost efficiencies through economies of scale."
Caris said by outsourcing the delivery of core services across the company's 50 offices, the internal IT team could focus on integrating strategic business systems.
