The companies recently attended a bidding conference at the council’s offices, and are after a contract that is expected to be one of the UK’s biggest local authority IT contracts.
The Sheffield contract covers core services including ICT provision, revenues and benefits, payroll and financial business transactions. The council also wants to outsource human resources, financial business transactions, business transformation, and property and facilities management.
Liberata is currently the supplier for the core group of services, but that contract comes to an end next year.
The UK’s biggest local authority contract is at Birmingham city council, where Capita holds a contract worth over £600m.
Jan Wilson, leader of Sheffield city council said, “We are a council constantly striving to improve and innovate. We want to deliver outstanding services to the people of Sheffield, and we are looking for a partner who can work alongside us to deliver that.”
