Xansa finalises deal with Beeb

IT contractor Xansa has finalised terms
for its £85m contract with the BBC to provide the national broadcaster with
outsourced finance and accounting services.

The deal will save the BBC in
excess of £200m over the life time of the contract and is part of the BBC’s
strategy to minimise the cost of its support services and release more money
into its creative output.

Xansa will deliver F&A services across the BBC and as prime contractor
will be working with Siemens Business
to provide infrastructure, applications support and customer
service facilities.

Xansa will take over responsibility for running the services in July 2007.
