HMRC has selected Bain & Company to guide its transition away from its £10.7 billion Aspire IT outsourcing contract. Bain beat eight other bids for the £20 million contract.
In order to try to gain more control over its IT infrastructure, and end the excessive profit making, the HMRC is exploring ways to change the way in which its IT operations are managed.
Consultancy.uk reports that Bain & Company was chosen on the back of its strategic IT expertise (85%) and price (15%), and the move will see the consultancy become HMRC’s main transformation advisory partner.
Bain’s new role will be to provide strategic support to the HMRC, helping the “programme management team exit from a large-scale outsourced IT arrangement” according to the tender document.
The consultants will among others be responsible for IT strategy advisory, programme management and governance, system process re-engineering, supporting the people and culture change workstream, and providing further functional/industry expertise as required.
The contract with Bain formally started in September of this year and runs until August 2017, thus sometime after the Aspire contract comes to an end.
Tax does have to be taxing.
