Cafcass signs £25m transformational government deal with Fujitsu

Cafcass (Children and Family Court Advisory and Support Service) has signed a £25m deal with Fujitsu to join the Flex transformational government framework jointly run with the Cabinet Office.

Cafcass (Children and Family Court Advisory and Support Service) has signed a £25m deal with Fujitsu to join the Flex transformational government framework jointly run with the Cabinet Office.

Flex is a framework that allows Fujitsu Services, in conjunction with the Cabinet Office, to provide ICT as a shared service across the public sector.

The contract is over a seven-year term, with a refresh of both hardware and software after four years.

The Flex service is designed to deliver cost savings and reduce the total cost of ownership for Cafcass.

It will significantly improve the end-user experience for office based workers, as well as improving the effectiveness and security of employees working remotely from family courts, home or from other government offices, said Cafcass.

The framework will also help Cafcass to achieve its carbon emission targets.

Lamorna Wooderson, corporate director at Cafcass, said, "The Flex framework offers a modern IT infrastructure, with improved levels of service and support and access to a range of consultancy skills and experience.

"Improvements in the security and protection of data were also a top priority for us. As a department which looks after the interests of children this is vital."

Fujitsu will provide managed desktop services for 2,000 users across 100 offices.
