The Land Registry has signed framework contracts with Civica and Perot Systems to ensure it has the IT resources for current and future projects.
The UK’s property title database, which is also a government department, has signed three-year framework agreements with the suppliers under the government’s Catalist list of approved IT providers.
The Land Registry said it wants “increased capacity for innovation”, and needs the extra application development capacity and staff to be available when the it launches key programmes or programme modules.
John Wright, information systems director at the Land Registry, said that flexible resourcing would allow the registry to pursue ambitious projects. “The framework provides us with a flexible and robust model for resourcing that enables us to respond quickly to the demands of our key programmes.”
He added: “Blending internal and external delivery will provide the ability to meet requirements efficiently, whether small or large.”
The Land Registry runs an e-conveyancing site, created by IBM. It also has a security contract with IBM to control access to its web-based services.
