IRD selects Accenture as preferred provider

Inland Revenue has selected Accenture as its preferred provider of design services for the first stage of its business transformation programme.

Inland Revenue has selected Accenture as its preferred provider of design services for the first stage of its business transformation programme.

Commissioner of Inland Revenue Naomi Ferguson, says the programme is a business-led, technology enabled transformation, which includes re-designing nearly every part of Inland Revenue.

“Tax and entitlement administration is critical for New Zealand, and it is essential Inland Revenue plan its changes carefully, and implements them properly, so New Zealanders can have trust and belief in its systems,” she says.

“That is why we need a partner like Accenture, which has designed and implemented systems of similar scale and requirement before.

“Throughout the procurement process, Accenture clearly demonstrated it had the right capabilities, capacity and experience to assist Inland Revenue."

Deputy Commissioner Change at Inland Revenue Greg James, says Inland Revenue is changing to make it easier for New Zealanders to pay their tax and get what they’re entitled to.

“Our business transformation programme will reduce compliance, administration time and costs, deliver better services for our customers, and make it easier for Government to implement policy,” he adds.

“Accenture’s experience and knowledge will make an important contribution to the success of the business transformation programme."

Inland Revenue will now commence negotiations with Accenture, which are expected to be completed following Cabinet’s consideration of the Transformation Design Business case.

Yet amidst the sensationalism, media headlines and ongoing high profile breaches, confusion floods the channel, as partners seek strategic methods to combat rising sophistication from attackers. In sizing up the security spectrum, this Reseller News roundtable - in association with F5 Networks, Kaspersky Lab, Tech Data, Sophos and SonicWall - assessed where the channel sweet spot is within the New Zealand channel.
