The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) is anticipating the faster deployment of new IT systems, major gains in productivity and significant cost savings with the award of a seven-year IT contract to Capgemini UK plc.

The DWP is committed to effecting one of the biggest transformations ever undertaken in Britain'​s welfare and benefits regime while simultaneously meeting stringent budget targets, and the Capgemini contract will have a key role in achieving both objectives. Capgemini UK employs some 8,000 people at 17 sites across Britain and is part of the Capgemini Group, one of the world'​s foremost providers of consulting, technology and outsourcing services.

The contract covers the provision and maintenance of a wide range of business applications as well as the development of IT prototypes to support important aspects of the welfare systems of the future, providing IT solutions which together will be used by the DWP'​s 100,000-plus employees at its offices across the UK.
