The New Zealand Government has signed an ICT Common Capability Cloud Human Resources Information System (HRIS) agreement with SAP, saving $5 million over five years as a result.
Through the agreement with the Department of Internal Affairs (DIA), SAP now supplies a cloud-based HRIS via the SAP SuccessFactors Human Capital Management (HCM) Suite to automate HR processes from hire to retire.
DIA, as the lead agency, has signed a Common Capability Agreement (CCA) on behalf of all agencies, meaning that agencies that want to adopt the HRIS service are not required to undergo a full procurement process.
Terms of the deal see SAP contracted to provide the HRIS service in the cloud - hosted in Sydney, Australia.
Services include core HR, recruiting, on-boarding, performance and goal management, learning management, compensation, succession and development, social collaboration and workforce analytics and planning.
“With its ‘cloud first’ strategy for technology adoption, the New Zealand Government is not only demonstrating innovation in online-service design and delivery, but is delivering true value to its citizens,” SAP New Zealand managing director, Graeme Riley, said.
Providing HRIS services via cloud-based solutions aligns with the Government ICT Strategy for cloud first technology adoption.
For Riley, partnering with SAP for the delivery of this service will give the New Zealand Government a number of benefits, including estimated cross government savings of $5 million over a five-year period, and opportunities to simplify processes and reduce duplication of effort to procure solutions, negotiate and administer contracts, as well as ensure contract compliance.
