HM Treasury has appointed Keysource under two contracts to support its Online System for Central Accounting and Reporting version 2 (OSCAR II).

OSCAR II contains a detailed analysis of departmental spending and from which the Whole of Government Accounts (WGA) and supply estimates are produced.

Keysource, which describes itself as a data centre and critical environment specialist, said that under the first contract it will be responsible for maintaining and operating the hosted environment, ensuring the availability, performance and security of the OSCAR II system.

The role will include developing enhancements to drive optimisation, security and vulnerability management, and performance analysis.

Under the second contract, the company will also manage the service desk and be responsible for delivering user support and service management on behalf of HM Treasury, acting as the single point of contact for all end users and OSCAR II suppliers. 

Access and incident management and trend analysis also form part of the remit alongside a commitment to service improvement and innovation.

Planning to evolve

Rachel Salim, deputy director finance analytics, control and technology at HM Treasury, said, “We are excited to see how we can evolve the service together over the next three years.”

Jon Healy, chief operating officer at Keysource said: “OSCAR II was developed to put finance analytics at the heart of decisions across Government, using more accurate data and spending more time on insight and analysis and less on manual quality checks and validation.

“Our role is to help provide a secure, scalable, and reliable platform for this financial management and reporting, ensuring the availability, performance, and security of the system.”
