DWP awards ‘odds and sods’ contract to Capgemini

The Department of Work and Pensions has awarded a contract to manage various back-office applications to IT services provider Capgemini.

Replacing pre-existing contracts with Hewlett-Packard and Atos, the new agreement covers various "bits and pieces" in the department’s application portfolio, a DWP spokesperson told Information Age.

"The contract covers one-off systems such as security monitoring, car park administration and medical leave application processing, as opposed to the core functions of the department," the spokesperson said.

Capgemini estimates that the seven-year contract may be worth between £5 and 10 million annually.
