The Scottish Government has signed Entserv UK to provide a spend analysis service for the country’s public sector.
In an indefinite deal but with an estimated initial value of £4.7million, the cloud-based service will allow public bodies to perform a wide range of analysis on their spending to help identify where there is room for collaboration and transactional efficiency.
The contract notice says this will be made available to the Scottish Government, NHS Scotland, local authorities and higher and further education.
DXC Technologies Group, the business unit of Entserv UK, has strengthened its position in supporting public sector procurement in Scotland through the agreement.
He helped establish the Scottish Procurement Information Hub to bring together data from more than 100 public bodies, and said he worked with the country’s procurement experts to help manage the complexity of contract data.
In recent months, the company has also entered into important agreements with the UK Passport Office to support digital apps and services and the Department of Health and Social Care to support the Information Management Services 4 programme.
