IT Contracts

Volume 450: debated on Tuesday 10 October 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for International Development what the value was of each IT contract awarded by his Department in each of the last five years; and who the contractor was in each case. (88984)

DFID has let three major IT contracts in the last five years.

The Human Resource system had a projected supplier cost at tender of £1.18 million. The supplier is Northgate HR Ltd, formerly known as Rebus Software Ltd, and the contract was signed in 2001.

The Quest Electronic Document and Record Management system had a projected supplier base cost at tender of £8.98 million. The projected total supplier cost is £10.76 million. This includes a number of additional cost options available under the original contract. The supplier is LogicaCMG UK Ltd and the contract was signed in 2004.

The Aries Finance, Procurement and Reporting System, had a projected base supplier cost at tender of £11 million. A number of additional cost options are available under the contract. The supplier is Agresso Ltd and the contract was signed in 2005.

DFID has also let a number of small IT related contracts. However, our central records do not distinguish IT contracts, so provision of details for these contracts would incur disproportionate costs.

To ask the Secretary of State for International Development which IT contracts awarded by his Department in each of the last five years have been abandoned; and what the value was in each case. (88985)
