| Press release
Paris, Barcelona – Capgemini España S.L., part of the Capgemini Group, one of the world’s foremost providers of consulting, technology and outsourcing services, today announced that it has won a four year agreement with the “Centre for Telecommunications and Information Technology” of the Government of Catalonia for the provision of a new IT governance model.

This contract, for the Office of Governance Services Operations Management and Quality Office*, has been awarded to Capgemini for a maximum total amount of EUR 13.5 million for a duration of four years with an option of two years extension. Capgemini and “Generalitat de Catalunya” have a mutually beneficial relationship that has lasted for more than ten years in which Capgemini has developed a significant variety of systems integration projects.

Capgemini will be the service integrator for the Government of Catalonia, as the organisation embarks on a project to enhance the role of IT in government and society by centralising all departments to create efficiencies, improve public services and manage resources effectively providing a better, more transparent and user-friendly service to citizens. The objectives of this project are to ensure proper central coordination, management, quality and performance of the services provided by the Government. The contract consolidates Capgemini’s position as a leading global service integrator and builds on recent successes in North America and the United Kingdom.

The Government of Catalonia joins a growing list of clients benefitting from our broad service integration experience”, notes Francisco Bermúdez, Head of Infrastructure Services at Capgemini Spain. “We will bring that experience to bear to help Generalitat de Catalunya to achieve their strategic objectives. The key to implementing a successful IT strategy is a set of well integrated and managed services delivered as a single, unified, quality service”.

Capgemini has been a leading provider of Infrastructure Services globally for many years, with a long-standing reputation for collaboration and delivering on business-focused objectives. Capgemini is noted as one of the few global service providers to consider stand-alone service integration, without a contractual imperative to deliver additional service towers.
