Accenture wins Met application management services contract
Application management services provider Accenture has been awarded a five-year contract to help the Metropolitan Police increase its use of digital technologies.
Under the terms of the deal, believed to be worth up to £86m, Accenture will work with the police service to manage its core information technology applications, including enhancing core applications and rationalising the application portfolio.
Chris Naylor, digital policing lead at the Metropolitan Police Service, said the contract was part of the force’s integrated multi-supplier delivery model and would see Accenture deliver a more modern, flexible IT environment that would reduce costs and improve the level of technology available.
“Accenture has strong industry experience and recognises the importance of collaboration and cross-supplier integration to help deliver next-generation police services,” he said.
“We look forward to working closely with Accenture in managing our applications and introducing new, innovative solutions.”
Accenture said part of the work delivered under the contract would be covered by staff at its Newcastle base, where “approximately 60 new technology roles” would be created.
