Scottish local authority Fife Council and Capgemini UK plc, part of the Capgemini Group, one of the world’s foremost providers of consulting, technology and outsourcing services, today announced the signing of a major four-year transformational partnership to deliver significant cost savings and efficiency improvements for the council.
Capgemini was selected for the partnership following a six-month procurement exercise involving responses from more than 20 leading national and international companies. The Council says that Capgemini was selected because of its collaborative approach, its experience and understanding of the public sector culture.
‘We aim to deliver important cost savings and efficiency gains to Fife Council – as we have achieved with local authorities in several parts of the UK including London -and therefore improved value for money to the people of Fife who will also gain from streamlined council services, ” said Bill Cook, CEO of Capgemini Consulting UK.
In line with Capgemini’s focus on service integration, a key feature of Capgemini’s proposal is its plan to deploy an ‘ecosystem’ of vendors, using a formula that the company has used successfully with several other UK clients. This approach will enable Fife Council to benefit from the best modern technologies from around the world from a variety of vendors.
