Government awards £185m Northern Ireland human resources contract

Northern Ireland's Department of Finance and Personnel has awarded Fujitsu Services a 15-year £185m contract for a new electronic human resources system.

Northern Ireland's Department of Finance and Personnel has awarded Fujitsu Services a 15-year £185m contract for a new electronic human resources system.

The contract sees Fujitsu Services providing a system that will support a total of 28,000 civil servants.

Under the deal, a service centre staffed with 200 private sector employees will deliver personnel services to the civil servants.

The new system is intended to boost efficiency in the Northern Ireland civil service and allow staff to concentrate on other duties in the province.

It was also announced this week that outsourcer Xansa had won a five-year £27m contract to provide a shared internet development portal to three government departments.

The shared internet platform will be used by Directgov, the government’s central online public services website; the Department of Health's corporate web service; and several services at the Department of Education and Skills.
