Logica has been selected by Wiltshire county council to provide a number of internal services.

It is hoped that the deal, which involves the fitting of a new computer system, will increase efficiency at the council and provide potential savings of between £8 million and £11 million per annum.

Commenting on the arrangement, council leader Jane Scott states it demonstrates the council making the most of the most "up-to-date technology" to provide "greater value for money".

Areas in which Logica will work include procurement, invoicing and human resources.

Joe Hemming, the chief executive officer at the firm, states: "The ultimate goal [of the deal] is to deliver value for money and this is at the centre of the change management, business and IT services which we deliver for our customers."

Mr Hemming adds that Logica's history with working with local government will allow it to deliver the deal's "required benefits".

Wiltshire county council offers services for 433,000 people. Around half of this number live in settlements of less than 5,000 people.
