Project Zanzibar

Feb 15, 2006
@UK is pleased to welcome the announcement made today that the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) has become the first public sector body to embrace the Zanzibar Managed Service, the Government’s new public sector e-procurement and marketplace system.

The Zanzibar Managed Service is seen as a key enabler in the Government’s efficiency and shared services agenda. Zanzibar is being delivered by a consortium headed by PA Consulting Group.

@UK is a member of the Zanzibar consortium with the lead role in supplier adoption, enabling suppliers to engage with the public bodies through an e-procurement platform.

Lyn Duncan, @UK Chief Executive, said:
“This is a major step forward in the government’s strategy of e-procurement and @UK looks forward to helping suppliers facilitate their online trading with different government departments.”
