The government has selected Capgemini to upgrade the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems, awarding the multinational IT corporation with a contact worth £6.3m.

The two-year deal, which will run until it’s re-tendered at the end of 2015, will see Capgemini support the upgrade of ERP systems that manage finance, procurement, projects, HR and payroll functions at the FCO.

It marks a continuation of longstanding cooperation between Capgemini and the FCO, with the IT solutions provider naturally pleased to have secured more business.

“We are pleased to be continuing our work with the FCO. This new agreement will give the FCO a seamless upgrade to the latest software versions and excellent value for money, with the support of a leaner and more flexible team,” said Chris Gravestock, account director FCO for Capgemini

Tim Gardner, the FCO’s corporate services centre director, also welcomed the deal.

“With the change in approach to service delivery, this new deal with Capgemini will allow us to make significant cost savings, while ensuring systems continue to support a large number of government departments that reside on the overseas platform provided by the FCO,” he said.
