Capgemini agrees extension to current HM Revenue & Customs contract

| Press release
The Capgemini Group, via its subsidiary Capgemini UK plc, has announced a 3 year extension to Aspire, their technology outsourcing contract with HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC).

The contract was initially awarded by the Inland Revenue for a ten-year period in July 2004, and subsequently expanded in April 2006 to incorporate the pre-existing Customs and Excise contract at the merger of the two government departments. The contract will now end in 2017 instead of 2014 as originally planned. In return, it will enable HMRC to reduce its IT running costs.

The client’s satisfaction with the services delivered by Capgemini to date on the Aspire contract, was decisive in fostering the extension.

Paul Hermelin, Group CEO, said: “This is a further landmark in Aspire’s successful history. The unique nature of our strategic collaboration with HMRC sets the benchmark for all outsourcing partnerships.”
