The Crown Commercial Service (CCS), working on behalf of Government’s Technology Leaders, and Oracle have signed a new Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) that will deliver additional savings for the taxpayer over the next three years.

The new MoU builds on the previous agreement signed in 2012 and extends the scope to additional public sector bodies, including the NHS, and more products and services.

Sally Collier, Chief Executive of CCS said:

The enhanced MoU will deliver savings across government and allow easier and more effective procurement of Oracle products and services. It lays the foundation of a more collaborative relationship between government and Oracle.

Oracle is one of government’s strategic suppliers and their Senior Vice President and UK Country Leader Dermot O’Kelly added:

We are delighted to demonstrate our commitment to the agenda of the new government in saving money and delivering leading-edge information technology to help transform public services. We look forward to continued productive and mutually beneficial relationships with our public sector customers.

Customers wishing to take advantage of the MoU should email softwarelicensing@crowncommercial.gov.uk for further information or call 0345 410 2222.
