Northern Ireland’s Driver and Vehicle Agency (DVA) has chosen Fujitsu Services as its strategic ICT partner.
They have agreed on a seven-year contract set to begin in October and valued at almost £16 million. There is an option for an extension of three years.
Under the deal, Fujitsu will work with the DVA on developing a new booking and rostering software system, supporting its other software applications and providing call-off development services.
The contract notice specifies that the DVA may want to integrate the system with others used by itself and other parts of the Northern Ireland Civil Service.
It also emphasises the agency’s ‘digital first’ approach and an aim to exploit new technologies and business opportunities.
Fujitsu has a significant presence in Northern Ireland’s public sector, holding the contract for the management of its Causeway data sharing system, and developing a business services centre in Derry.
