Projects

Department of Corrections

In 2010 Optimation assumed prime responsibility for the outsourced Application Development, Maintenance and Support services for the Department of Corrections. A large component of the outsourcing scope is the Integrated Offender Management System (IOMS) which is one of NZ’s largest Microsoft applications and supports all business functionality for Prison services, Parole services, and Community Probation services. The outsource contract also includes SAP, the Department’s internal and external websites and other business applications. The contract is delivered by an Optimation-led consortium with HCL (an Indian on-shore/offshore delivery partner) and local company Resultex. The consortium operates in a highly collaborative model with Gen-i (L1 Service Desk and Infrastructure provider) and the Department of Corrections (IT planning and Enterprise Architecture). This creative outcomes-based model delivers significant value for the Department of Corrections through its combination of strong NZ-based relationship management, governance, programme/project management and systems integration with global experience and highly scalable best practice capability. The Optimation-led consortium has worked very successfully with the Department and recently signed a three year contract extension out to July 2018.
