CSL, the local government division of services group Liberata, takes over the running of council services, which also include sundry debtors, mortgages, loans and cashiers, from Capita and ICL.
Bromley said the initial priority for the contract, which will run for seven years, is to stabilise the business, particularly in housing benefits. This will include the introduction of an electronic benefits form, which will add to the e-government initiatives already under way in the borough.
Sx3, which supplies IT-related outsourcing products and services, has been signed up by CSL to provide the council with IT infrastructure support.
This will cover development, support and operations of the distributed hardware and software infrastructure systems, communication, networks, desktop environment and associated services and consultancy.
