CSL, the local government business of Liberata plc, has been awarded a£50m

contract with Bromley LBC for the provision of a wide

range of services including front line services for council tax, housing and

council tax benefits and national non-domestic rates. The contract

commenced on 1 April 2002 and will run for seven years with an extension for

a further two years.

CSL and Bromley have also selected Sx3 as their ICT support partner

providing training and use of all IT systems, consultancy and applications

development. This IT infrastructure support was originally managed by ICL,

but their staff has now transferred to be part of the Sx3 IT support team of

22 people.

The IT infrastructure services provided by Sx3 will cover development,

support and operations of the distributed hardware and software

infrastructure systems, communication, networks, desktop environment and

associated services and consultancy.

Bill Green, managing director of Liberata's local government division said:

'We are delighted to have the opportunity to work with

Bromley LBC and to introduce truly innovative ideas in partnership with them.

Our experience in providing high quality services will enable the

partnership to deliver maximum business advantage to Bromley in a manner

which best suits the council's aspirations and culture.'

Norman Gregg, managing director of Sx3's Infrastructure Services, said: 'Bromley LBC is the first London borough that has signed up to

Sx3's Managed Services support, and we are pleased to be working with CSL

again, to provide quality service to local government.'

Sx3 are contracted to work with CSL, in order to provide a single integrated

point of contact for Bromley. The success of this structure meant that

there was a seamless transition when the services were transferred over from

Capita to CSL, and ICL to Sx3. This took place successfully over a weekend,

with all systems running smoothly immediately after handover.

The initial priority for the contract is to stabilise the business,

particularly in housing benefits. This will include the introduction of an

electronic benefits form that fits in with e-government initiatives already

under way in Bromley.

Paul Dale, director of resources for Bromley LBC, said 'We

went through a rigorous selection process to find the partner who would

deliver the best services most cost-effectively. I am confident that the

citizens of Bromley will see real benefits from this new partnership.'
