Capgemini, Accenture vie for welfare system project

Capgemini and Accenture have been shortlisted for final-stage negotiations to provide systems integration services for the major Welfare Payment Infrastructure Transformation project.

The two professional services companies will both work with the federal Department of Human Services in a ‘try before you buy’ scenario over the coming weeks, before the final decision is made.

Whichever company is selected will work with the core software vendor to deliver a transformed payment system to replace Centrelink’s ageing IT systems.

The company that comes in second will be invited to form part of a panel of providers standing by to provide integration and data migration services as needed over the course of the implementation project.

“This project will change the way Australians do business with government — significantly improving the user experience and ensuring the long-term sustainability of the welfare system,” Minister for Human Services Alan Tudge said in a statement.

He noted that the project will be completed in multiple tranches, with the first stage very close to completion. The second tranche of the project is due to commence next year.
