Capgemini to replace IBM at Surrey Council

Capgemini is the new incumbent IT services provider at Surrey County Council. The consultancy has replaced IBM after signing a five-year deal, which went into effect in March.

Capgemini will replace and host Surrey’s SAP-based IT infrastructure and provide upgrades and support over the next five years. The company will also host and support a new SAP social-care system for Surrey.

Surrey is the last in line of recent successes for Capgemini in the UK local government space. Others include an £83 million extension of a deal with the Croydon Borough Council and winning a deal in West Sussex.

Dorset County Councillors have also decided to award a five-year, £6.5 million deal to Capgemini. The consultancy will introduce a new computer system called Enterprise Resource Planning as part of the council's Fit for the Future efficiency programme, which is expected to save them £8.6 million a year.

Corporate resources director Elaine Taylor says: "Capgemini were the unanimous recommendation of the project team. At an external cost of around £6.5 million to implement and run the system for five years, this is a major investment for the county council."
