The majority of HMRC's IT services are provided by Capgemini for £750M per annum.
The article highlights some "large" numbers:
- over 600 computer systems (targeted to be reduced to 13),
- 8,000 servers,
- 80,000 desktop PCs,
- 7,500 laptops
Since 2004, when Capgemini was awarded the Aspire contract, HMRC has made IT savings of £152M. Its target is to save £1.2BN by 2017.
My jaw dropped open when I read that there are 20,000 key performance indicators (KPIs) involved in the process.
One hell of a task, by anyone's standards!
Kudos to HMRC if they succeed with this.
Tax does have to be taxing.
