The Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA) is an in 2004 formed non-departmental public body of the UK responsible for the effective and efficient clean-up of the UK’s nuclear legacy. This clean-up, which is the largest, most important environmental restoration programme in Europe, includes the decommissioning of 17 of civil public sector nuclear sites spread across the UK. In addition, the NDA provides advice on decommissioning plans for current and planned nuclear power stations.

In 2012, the NDA awarded Capita IT Enterprise Services 3-year contract to manage its complete IT infrastructure. With this deal recently ending, the NDA extended the contract with another two years, seeing Capita provide IT services worth £2.4 million through to 2017.

Under the contract, Capita provides a team of full-time, security-cleared staff to the NDA. This team offers end-to-end managed desktop, network and infrastructure services to NDA’s offices across the UK. In addition, the consulting firm offers strategic IT guidance to ensure NDA is equipped with the right systems, applications and tools, and a number of cyber-security solutions, including a Mobile Device Management solution for NDA employees to communicate and access files securely whilst travelling and offsite.

Commenting on the renewed contract, Peter Hands, Executive Director for Capita IT Enterprise Services, says: “We have been working with the NDA since 2012 – and this contract extension is a reflection of the close, collaborative approach we have taken. In the nuclear industry, security and reliability are crucial – and this contract is a great opportunity for Capita to demonstrate its capabilities.”

BAE Systems Maritime-Submarines has confirmed a five-year contract with Capgemini to take over the provision of a spectrum of IT services in the UK. The deal will help BAE Systems Maritime-Submarines reduce the cost of IT from its base in Barrow-in-Furness in Cumbria.

Since the firm’s UK profits were found to have halved in 2018, Capgemini has been working to improve its offering and attract new clients. In the summer, the global IT services consultancy combined a number of its creative wings to form Capgemini Invent, while a deal with Amazon Web Services enabled the firm to improve its cost-saving digital offering to clients looking for IT outsourcing work.

In the last year, Capgemini has subsequently won a series of contracts leveraging its IT delivery services on behalf of a variety of entities. The firm partnered with Statoil to deliver digital innovation across the company, as well as taking a role to innovate the fan experience of the Rugby World Cup 7s tournament, and replacing Atos as the IT services provider of McDonald’s

Capgemini’s five-year contract with BAE Systems Maritime-Submarines will see Capgemini take over the provision of a spectrum of IT services for the BAE wing in the UK, including service orchestration, networking, hosting, end-user computing, DevOps, reporting and analytics, automation, and a digital service desk.

BAE Systems has been looking to improve its bottom line in the UK in recent years, and the move is aimed at transforming its Maritime-Submarines business IT delivery, allowing the company to take advantage of innovative digital technologies, create better user experiences, ensure high service availability, and reduce the cost of IT, from its base in Barrow-in-Furness in Cumbria. Capgemini’s IT solution was selected because of its ability to support the company’s evolving requirements, including the need to further enhance the responsiveness of the IT service, and effectiveness and agility of the delivery model.

Stephen Cole, CIO, BAE Systems Submarines, said, “As we embarked on this critical programme for our Submarines business that will deliver improved agile digital services, world-class service transformation and orchestration capabilities underpinned by very strong references were essential in our selection process. We are confident that Capgemini met these requirements and is the right partner for us. The team really understands where we are trying to get to as a business and its collaborative approach alongside its commitment to developing skills in the local area were paramount to our decision.”

Paul Margetts, Managing Director, UK Business Unit at Capgemini, added, “We are delighted to expand upon our business relationship with BAE Systems. Having worked with the company over the past four years, we have seen the tremendous opportunities for change that this programme presents and are hugely excited to be part of the journey at BAE Systems Maritime-Submarines, to help the company make a step change and satisfy new business requirements. We also look forward to increasing our involvement with the local North West community and Barrow in particular.”
