Shared ICT services given go-ahead in Wellington
Posted on 31-Oct-2015 11:19 | Tags Filed under: News



The chief executives of Wellington City Council, Porirua City Council, Upper Hutt City Council and Wellington Water have approved a final implementation business case to share information and communications technology (ICT) infrastructure services.

This is a significant milestone that consolidates the work undertaken following the completion of a feasibility study in December 2013.

“The business case shows there are significant benefits for each organisation participating in the shared services model,” says Wellington City Council Chief Executive Kevin Lavery.

“Along with financial benefits there will be the additional benefits of a more stable, reliable and resilient ICT system.

“While each organisation will realise different levels of benefits there will be an overall improvement in services. Now that an agreed service model has been established, other councils and CCOs in the region can also consider developing their own business case to assess whether participation will meet their needs and generate cost savings.”

Following the appointment of Dimension Data as preferred supplier in late June, contract negotiations have now been completed and the contract has been signed.

A number of NZ companies will work alongside Dimension Data as part of a consortium to support the delivery of the shared services solution, including CityLink, Datacom, Spark Wholesale and Xtreme Data Centre.

Implementation of the new services will be phased and is expected to take about 14 months.
