Written by Jim Dunton on 15 March 2016 in News

Application management services provider Accenture has been awarded a five-year contract to help the Metropolitan Police increase its use of digital technologies.

Under the terms of the deal, believed to be worth up to £86m, Accenture will work with the police service to manage its core information technology applications, including enhancing core applications and rationalising the application portfolio. 

Chris Naylor, digital policing lead at the Metropolitan Police Service, said the contract was part of the force’s integrated multi-supplier delivery model and would see Accenture deliver a more modern, flexible IT environment that would reduce costs and improve the level of technology available.
