IT firm lands £91m HMRC contract

Birmingham-based IT firm SCC has won a £91m IT software and services contract extension with HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC), taking its partnership with the UK’s tax, payments, and customs authority to 12 years.

The five year deal, with the option of an additional two years, extends the original five year CDP (Customs Declaration Processing) contract, signed in 2016, to 2028.

By extending its partnership with HMRC, SCC has strengthened its presence across central Government, where it continues to deliver services for customers including the Home Office, Ministry of Defence (MOD) and HM Land Registry.

Richard Reader, head of public sector at SCC, said: “We are thrilled to extend our contract with HMRC to deliver IT software and services that help this critical Government department evolve its digital strategy. This new contract builds on the trusted partnership we have established over the past five years and demonstrates SCC’s commitment to service excellence, despite challenging conditions created by the pandemic.

“Transforming to a digital landscape is the ambition of all government departments, and we are already helping customers on their digital transformation journey by architecting technical solutions, designing and running transformation programmes, and underpinning the resulting services through our network of Service Centres.”
