Kyndryl has signed a deal with HMRC to manage some of its mainframe services and prepare the agency for cloud migration.
The deal, which is worth £4.4 million, is contracted to last to end of September 2024, and will see Kyndryl support HMRC to develop more agile operations with modern IT architecture.
HMRC directly contracted Kyndryl through the G-Cloud Framework, a UK government initiative that allows public bodies to procure cloud services from government-approved providers via ab online catalogue.
Kyndryl Consult will utilise existing partnerships with Microsoft and the Advanced Computer Software Group to modernise HMRC’s operations for the future, working collaboratively with HMRC staff.
“Kyndryl is thrilled to sign its first direct contract with HMRC to support HMRC’s strategic aims of administering tax systems in the simplest, most customer-centric and efficient way,” said John Chambers, Kyndryl United Kingdom & Ireland President.
“The agreement underpins our continued commitment and focus to support the UK’s public sector and to drive better outcomes for UK citizens.”
