The London Borough of Barnet is to overhaul its HR and payroll processes, after signing a £8m deal with consultancy LogicaCMG to replace its ageing IT systems.
The new enterprise system, from software firm SAP, will form part of a wider ‘Modernising Core Processes’ transformation programme at Barnet.
As well as supporting HR and payroll, the new system will be used for back-office processes, incuding finance, procurement and asset management.
Barnet councillor and cabinet member Mike Freer said the deal is one of the biggest projects the council has ever undertaken.
“It is a further step towards modernising Barnet Council and making it a business-like borough that manages its resources efficiently and effectively, enabling it to provide excellent services to local people,” he said.
