The Government Digital Service (GDS) has increased its spending with Deloitte on the company’s contribution to the One Login programme.

It is part of a trend in which the organisation is increasing its investment to accelerate the development of the sign-on mechanism for government services.

GDS has published a contract notice declaring that it has raised the amount it is spending with Deloitte as delivery partner for the programme by £3.3 million to £12.3 million.

It states that the company will provide managed professional services through multi-disciplined delivery teams working on outcomes based statements of work in the programme. This follows the award of an initial contract in March.

Hippo deal

GDS has also increased the spend on a contract with Hippo Digital as part of the One Login programme in October, from £1.95 million to £3.51 million, stating this came in response to needing teams for outcome based pieces of work, and that the existing contract value had been almost exhausted.

In May it signed consultancy 6 Point 6 to provide architecture services under a deal worth up to £3 million, stating it was done in response to an urgent requirement to maintain the delivery momentum of the programme.

Deloitte is also developing a mobile app for digital identity checks for government services under a £4.8 million deal that went public in February.

A beta version of One Login went into use at the Disclosure and Barring Service in August.
