Centrica awards global IT support contract to Capgemini

| Press release
Paris, London – Centrica plc has awarded a five-year contract to Capgemini UK plc for the management and support of its corporate global SAP services in the UK, Norway, the Netherlands and North America. This contract will support the company's ambitious plans for continued expansion in the North Sea and internationally.

Centrica is a FTSE 30 company, operating predominantly in the UK and North America. Its vision is to be the leading integrated energy company, with customers at its core. Capgemini UK is part of the Capgemini Group, one of the world's foremost providers of consulting, technology and outsourcing services.

Capgemini is tasked with transforming and simplifying SAP services at Centrica, with a focus on delivering uniform and consistent IT support on a global scale. The contract includes SAP applications and infrastructure management but does not include SAP customer care and billing for British Gas.

The award follows competitive bids from several multinational IT companies. As a leading energy company, which is growing internationally, Centrica required support from a company with experience in delivering large-scale out-sourcing projects in the oil, gas and utilities industries worldwide. Having successfully delivered projects with Capgemini in the past, there was also a strong working relationship to build on.

James Forrest, Vice President, Utilities, Capgemini said: "Capgemini is very proud to be the company selected to support Centrica. We look forward to immediately deploying our global resources and skills in support of Centrica's aims and ambitions within the crucial energy sector."
