HP got the most IT money from the DWP last year and continues to increase DWP workload

This is an interesting top 100 list. It is the top 100 suppliers to the Department for Work and Pensions in 2009/2010 in terms of the amount of money spent with them.

HP tops the list for IT suppliers and is actually the second most paid supplier of all. This is ironic because HP has recently been contributing to the DWP’s workload with thousands of UK job cuts.

The Original article was on Kable.co.uk, where you can see the full list

Here is an article on Kable.co.uk about this.

As the spending review creeps closer it is interesting to see how much is spent by the DWP with IT suppliers. You can see why HP was keen for its staff at the DWP to stop striking.

But here are some of the IT suppliers in the top 100, where they were ranked, and how much they were paid.

Company                                     DWP revenue

2 – HP Enterprise Services            £657m
4 – BT                                         £233m
7 – Atos Origin                             £151m
9 – Accenture                               £87m
11 – Capita                                  £69m
14 – Xerox UK                               £61m
15 – Computacenter                      £53m
33 – Fujitsu Services                     £16m
40 – Capgemini                             £13.5m
41 – TCS                                       £13m
47 – Steria                                    £11m
51 – IBM                                        £10m

I look forward to seeing how different this list looks after the MOUs are signed by suppliers and the government spending review hits home.

David Cameron described some of the Labour government’s spending, including IT, as crazy.
