IT news in brief

The House of Commons has signed a £1.1m deal to implement a web-enabled financial and business information management system from Agresso.

The project is called the House Administrative Information System and includes the consolidation of a number of systems within the Commons. This includes financials, purchasing, project, HR and payroll modules. Peter Skerrett, head of the HAIS project at the House of Commons said: ‘We needed to replace ageing systems with a single fully integrated solution.’

Irish revenue commissioners will adopt a computerised risk analysis system to replace the manual processes for weeding out tax evaders. Scheduled to be operational by 2003 at a cost of approximately EUR1.4m, the system was supplied by Bull Information Systems. Where similar systems have been implemented in other countries, tax revenues have increased by as much as 20%.
