Aspire Renegotiated

Computer Says No
HMRC has renegotiated its Aspire contract for IT with service providers Capgemini, Accenture and Fujitsu.

The renegotiated contract (the second time HMRC has done this in 2 years) aims to save £110M per annum by scrapping the legacy systems taken on board by the merger of the Revenue and Customs and Excise, and by shutting down a number of data centres.

The service providers will have exclusivity until 2013. All of HMRC's IT expenditure will now be channelled through Aspire, locking out any other potential suppliers.

CEO of Capgemini Aspire, Nigel Martin is quoted on Crystal Umbrella:

"The new agreement would not have been possible without our track record of reliable service and up to 200 projects delivered on time and within budget for HMRC each and every year."

I wonder if reality will live up to hype?

Tax does have to be taxing.
