Section I: Contracting authority
Section II: Object
HMRC Technology Sourcing Programme (TSP)
The purpose of this prior information notice is to alert interested parties that HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) will be holding a market engagement event on Monday 12 October 2020 to enable its requirement in breaking down and addressing GBP 900 million worth of its IT spend; this will be through the Technology Sourcing Programme (TSP). TSP aims to deliver a step change in how HMRC delivers IT, works with IT suppliers to procure and utilise technology and how we work more broadly as an organisation. At this event, HMRC will describe its strategy and plans for TSP.
HMRC collects over GBP 600 billion tax annually to fund vital public services. HMRC’s ambition is to be one of the most digitally advanced tax authorities in the world and technology is at the heart of its transformation.
The Technology Sourcing Programme (TSP) will aim to support this through the development and implementation of an industry-leading technology target supply chain model, establish partnerships with suppliers to deliver innovation, enable the ability to address technical debt, reduce risk in our estate, improve cost effectiveness, provide flexibility and protect live services. The Programme will address HMRC’s entire IT run and change spend of GBP 900 million/annum and represents a major opportunity within the Public Sector IT transformation space.
Suppliers are invited to an online presentation on Monday 12th October to hear further about HMRC’s vision, strategy and future sourcing plans. The event time is 14.00-16.00, suppliers are asked to join by 13.45 to allow a prompt start.
Suppliers wishing to attend the supplier day can register, preferably via an RFi event on the HMRC/SAP Ariba portal, as per VI.3). This will provide a link to the techUK registration and additional TSP information. Alternatively, suppliers can register directly with techUK using the link in V1.3). Suppliers must register for the supplier day no later than 12.00 on 9 October 2020.
Section IV: Procedure
Section VI: Complementary information
