Birmingham proposes flexible ICT partnership

Birmingham proposes flexible ICT partnership image

A more flexible ICT partnership to save £43m by 2021 has been proposed by Birmingham City Council to replace the current joint venture.

Earlier this year, the council confirmed it would scrap its joint venture with Capita three years early due to its commercial restrictions.

The proposed new partnership has now been published and will be considered by the council’s cabinet on the 14 November.

As well as delivering core ICT services and implemented the council’s ICT and Digital Strategy, the new partnership will also focus on project-based work to deliver savings over the next three years.

Cllr Ian Ward, interim leader of the City Council, said: ‘The new deal will see the council gradually take more control of its ICT & Digital services between now and 2021, by Capita and the council working together on the transition.

‘Through these negotiations we have been able to secure significant savings in 2017-18, as well secure future savings over the remaining three years of the contract. We need to protect frontline services and begin a process that will enable us to meet other future challenges.’
