Driving UK Health and Safety Executive’s IT transformation

Steria, a leading provider of IT-enabled business services, announces that it has signed a three year strategic partnership with the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).

The contract, valued at £20m (€23m), will see Steria transform and operate HSE’s Information Systems and Technology services, based on a consolidated, virtualised ICT infrastructure and the introduction of a proven and successful delivery model. 

Steria will improve the availability, efficiency and flexibility of IT services for HSE staff. The introduction of virtual servers at the HSE will also reduce power consumption and associated costs by over 70 percent.

The transfer of services from HSE’s previous supplier, Logica, is due to be completed in mid-2013. 

John Torrie, CEO of Steria UK, said: “At Steria we have a solid track record of delivering transformational IT projects across the private and public sector. With our extensive experience delivering services to UK Government, we are well positioned to add significant value at the HSE and comprehensively meet and exceed their delivery expectations. We recognise that cost reduction and improved service delivery quality are essential deliverables for success at HSE and we look forward to working with the team in a trusted partnership to transform service delivery.”
