French global IT services company Capgemini, which announced in November that it was returning to New Zealand after a nine-year absence, has been appointed by Inland Revenue to help in the next phase of the department’s transformation planning.
Inland Revenue commissioner Bob Russell says in a statement to Computerworld that the terms of the contract can’t be disclosed because of commercial confidentiality.
“However, we have taken every possible step to ensure we selected the right partner to work with us,” he says. “This included proactively contacting firms to make them aware of the request for proposal, engaging an independent external service to prepare the RFP, and gaining independent advice regarding the selection process.
“We are confident we have chosen the right transformation partner. One of the criteria was experience in guiding large public sector organisations through a major business transformation, including modernisation of information technology.
“Working with Capgemini will enable us to learn from other organisations that have experienced change on a similar scale, and to adopt international best practice in our approach to transformation.
“The experience will complement and grow our expertise within Inland Revenue.”
