The Pensions Regulator (TPR) has awarded outsourcer Capgemini a seven year £2.4 million contract to implement and support an integrated case and document management system.
The deployed system for the regulator of work-based pension schemes in the UK will meet the needs of automatic enrolment and the regulator’s wider business, said TPR.
Every employer with staff in the UK must automatically enrol those who are eligible into a workplace pension scheme and contribute towards it. The contract will deliver a system that will help TPR better automate the capture, processing and output of pension cases.
The programme will initially deliver the automatic enrolment capability and then roll-out to other areas of the business through a series of "optional releases", said Capgemini, which says it is using agile development techniques for the work to speed time to market.
Back in 2011, The Pensions Regulator awarded Capita a £105 million seven-year contract to deliver "employer education" for automatic pension enrolment. Employers have to phase in automatic enrolment of staff into workplace pension schemes by September 2016, depending on company size. The seven-year contract has a further three-year extension option.
