Infosys gets $80.3 million contract from Canadian firm

The new platform will enable PSPC to purchase various goods and services through a single portal.

Infosys Public Services on Monday announced that it has been awarded a computer-aided design contract worth $80.3 million by Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC) to modernise and automate their procurement processes.

IPS is working with Ernst & Young and SAP Canada to digitise PSPC procurement system through the implementation and management of a cloud-based electronic procurement solution. The new solution will provide an intuitive, web-based portal for PSPC and its suppliers to access procurement information and services in both English and French, according to a company statement.

The new platform will enable PSPC to purchase various goods and services through a single portal, easily configure specific requirements, and access data, reporting, and analytics information in real-time to support more effective decision-making.

Based on the experience within PSPC, the government will determine whether to expand the solution to other federal departments and agencies. Provincial and municipal organizations will later be offered an option to use this new platform to streamline their procurement processes and reduce the administrative burden while engaging with more than 183,000 government suppliers.

As the prime system integrator, Infosys will implement the SAP-based solution and set up a network that provides tier 1, 2 and 3 support services. EY Canada will facilitate the design and deployment of future state processes and enabling technology to support the PSPC procurement modernization agenda. EY Canada will also provide change management and training support as the program gets rolled out.

“Navigating their programs and services to a digital future requires organizations to not only identify the right technologies to implement but also to enable them quickly and at scale,” said Eric Paternoster, Chief Executive Officer, Infosys Public Services.
