Description: This programme will transform the Department’s major commercial vehicles for delivering IT services, as they come to an end between 2014 and 2016. The objectives of the Programme are to: • Ensure continuity of supply of IT to the Department. • Reduce the cost of IT provision relative to the cost of replacing the contracts. • Improve responsiveness and service levels delivered by our suppliers. • Maximise future flexibility and avoid lock-in to any supplier. • Maintain a strong in-house capability to acquire and manage critical IT services. • Extend the Department’s deals to other Government Departments. • Introduce smaller companies into the IT supply chain. • Ensure compliance with Government ICT Strategy; • Optimise commercial outcomes by seeking the best deal for the Department overall
