Glasgow signs seven-year IT contract to replace joint venture image

Glasgow City Council has selected software company CGI to deliver its IT services, as its £260m joint venture with public services provider Serco ends.

CGI has been awarded a seven-year contract.

It will work to improve the council’s delivery of social care to people in their homes, as well as sponsor IT training for 100 long-term unemployed people every year.

The 10-year joint venture agreement with Serco, called ACCESS, was launched in 2008 to deliver Glasgow’s ICT and property services.

A joint statement from the council and Serco read: ‘Everyone involved recognises the significant service improvements and £70m savings the ACCESS joint venture has delivered over the past decade, clearly demonstrating the results which can be achieved through an effective partnership between like-minded public and private sector organisations.’
