The federal government IT consolidation is picking up speed. From now on, a consortium of five medium-sized IT consulting companies will support the direct federal government in creating the conditions for the transfer of IT operations to the IT service providers of the federal government.
The goal: By 2022, the federal government wants to bundle 80% of the IT operations of the federal administration with central IT service providers, thereby ensuring greater IT efficiency and security in the subordinate authorities.
As an important prerequisite, the Procurement Office of the Federal Ministry of the Interior (BMI) has tendered the interministerial framework agreement "IT Consolidation of the Confederation: Support for the ability to acquire a client" (lot 1).
The contract was awarded to us as general contractor in a consortium with akquinet AG, ISB AG, SINC GmbH and 4Soft GmbH. Under the framework agreement, federal authorities that will be consolidating operations over the next few years will be able to call up organizational and process consulting on the basis of a standardized procedure model, thus preparing for the smooth transfer of their IT operations.
"Through targeted support in the development of ITIL-based IT service management and in the qualification of our employees, we are laying an important foundation for the authority projects for operational consolidation. I am pleased that we are forming a strong alliancewith experienced partners that the federal administration can count on in the preparation of the very complex transformation projects."
