Logica, BT and HP, representing the Match consortium, have been awarded a contract extension by the Dutch Ministry of Interior and Kingdom Relations, for the maintenance services provided by Match for the government-wide HR system that runs on the Match infrastructure.
Through the contract, Match supports P-Direkt, the HR service agency of the Dutch central government. P-Direkt services 130.000 civil servants and the seven-year contract extension is worth about €17m.
The contract is an extension of the framework agreement signed in 2008 between the Ministry of Interior and Kingdom Relations and Match for the maintenance of the central government IT-infrastructure used by P-Direkt and Digitale Werkomgeving Rijksdienst (DWR), the central government IT service agency. In 2009, the ministry awarded contracts to Match for maintenance services worth €30m.
As part of the contract, Logica is responsible for the project migration, technical application maintenance and service management tasks. BT is the hosting provider and HP is responsible for the technical architecture and delivering the necessary infrastructure.
Match was already responsible for the maintenance of other IT systems that support the HR processes of the Dutch ministries and for the roll out of the central infrastructure for the digital staff files.
