II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

The Government's 2018 Shared Services (GSS) Strategy advises that as Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) technology moves to the cloud, Government Departments should disaggregate their future technology platform from transactional services (i.e. BPO) to enable a more flexible and efficient service.

MoJ's Finance, Human Resources and Commercial functions support the core Department, 33 agencies and Non-Departmental Public Bodies, and the Territorial Offices (Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland Offices).

The functions provide critical services such as maintaining HR records, staff recruitment, payroll processing for approximately 82 000 employees and paying suppliers who deliver necessary goods and services.

Shared services, delivered via the ISSC2 contract (a call off to the cabinet office shared services framework RM1046) by Shared Services Connected Ltd (SSCL), support the functions by performing activities such as:

• payroll — payment of staff salaries;

• finance — journal posting, purchase order and invoice reconciliation, general ledger transactions, tax returns;

• human resources — pensions calculations, absence calculations, recruitment support and on-boarding and off-boarding of staff.

The current platform supports many of the finance, purchasing and human resource processes. The ERP SaaS Solution must have the functionality to support Central Government's global design principles for both HR (https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/global-hr-design) and Finance (https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/finance-global-design-principles) which the MoJ will adopt as part of the transformation programme.

MOJ is considering whether to, as part of this procurement to establish a framework arrangement as a means for Central Government Departments and other UK public sector bodies currently receiving services as part of the cabinet office shared services framework (RM1046), to purchase a configured enterprise resource planning solution. Please note that for the purposes of this notice, the information set out above together with the value specified in Section II.1.5) relates to the scope of services for MOJ only.
