Mason Advisory lands major government contract

IT consultancy beats off stiff competition to get a two-year multi-million pound public sector contract

Channel player Mason Advisory has landed a £3.7m contract to deliver a strategic operating model for the Home Office Digital, Data and technology department.

The firm will be tasked over a two-year period with helping the government department build on its existing resources and provide a strategy that can introduce the flexibility needed to react to changing demands.

The Salford-based It consultancy beat off more than 50 applicants to land the contract and its team will start working with the department to roll out a strategic operating model that will improve value for money and meet the needs of the public sector body.

“The ability to combine all of the workstreams that form a successful transformation rests heavily on understanding the human side of business change," said Duncan Swan, managing director – public sector at Mason Advisory.

“That really does play to our core strengths at Mason Advisory. Of course we’re delighted to have been given this opportunity to help the Home Office transform its delivery capabilities – more than that, we’re already enjoying our initial interactions with the Home Office team and share a common goal of ensuring the Strategic Operating Model for DDaT is delivered successfully. It really matters; it is core to achieving the value for money outcomes we all expect Government," he added.

Mason Advisory already has a number of high profile clients but this is a feather in the cap for the five-year-old firm and Swan said that it had worked hard to establish a solid reputation for delivering answers to customer problems.

“This latest Government contract comes on the back of an exciting year for the company delivering projects for high-profile clients and receiving industry recognition. Success in business is hard earned; we are building on all that we have achieved thus far so that we continue to go from strength to strength," he said.
