Derby City Council has awarded a£3.25m PFI contract to Anite Public Sector to manage IT applications and services in its revenues and benefits department.

The contract will see Anite become the prime contractor on the project,

following a close working relationship with Bull Information Systems. Over

the past 30 months, the two companies have worked closely together to

implement and manage the revenues & benefits solution. The integrated IT

solution has already been through two financial year ends and annual billing

cycles.

The four and a half year year PFI project will be an output-based contract where Anite is assessed against financial savings & hitting targets. Key areas which Anite

will be managing and monitored against include:

*the payment of Housing and Council Tax Benefits

*the billing and collection of Council Tax and Business Rates

revenue

*the monitoring and collection of arrears associated with

council tax, business rates and housing benefits overpayments

Paul Dransfield, director of finance for Derby City Council: 'The

transfer of the PFI contract to Anite, linked to the promised service

enhancements should see significant customer service improvements in the

coming months, backed by real efficiency savings.'
