Infy, Unisys in line to win New South Wales shared services contract

The New South Wales government has announced a memorandum of understanding with Infosys and Unisys to implement shared services across state agencies.

Both companies have been shortlisted by the New South Wales administration to deliver shared services across verticals like human resources, ICT and finance to more than 6,000 public servants across the government, and discussions in this direction are currently ongoing, Minister for Finance and Services, Dominic Perrottet, said in a statement on Thursday.

The memorandum of understanding is expected to be finalised and signed by all parties before Christmas. A decision on the final arrangements will be made in April following detailed due diligence and contract negotiations.

“By establishing the MoU we are committed to working with the organisations (Infosys and Unisys) to explore options for how they could soon provide services for government agencies.

“The establishment of a memorandum of understanding provides a certainty to clients, as well as staff, as it creates a clear pathway for the future transition of services next year,” Perrottet said.

Infosys and Unisys have expertise in providing shared services and currently provide services to a range of private companies, Perrottet said.

He said the move towards sourcing shared services from the private sector was aimed to improve service delivery, quality and to ensure value for money for government and taxpayers.

“The two new delivery partners will bring specialist experience as well as knowledge of industry benchmarks and standards and will provide enhanced business practices,” Perrottet said.
