CACI awarded contract with CQC
26th August 2015, London - CACI, the leading IT and data consultancy, today announces that it has been awarded a £1.16m contract by the regulator of health and adult social care in England, for a national resource planning solution until 2017. Following a competitive procurement process, CACI will assist the Care Quality Commission (CQC) in managing almost 20,000 yearly inspections.
The CQC is responsible for registering and inspecting all providers of healthcare or adult social care services in England. This includes the NHS, adult social care, independent healthcare providers, private ambulance services, prison health services, dental practices, general practices and mental health services. The CQC monitors and regulates all these services to make sure they meet fundamental standards of quality and safety.
CACI will provide the CQC with a national resource planning solution to assist its entire remit of inspections. CACI’s business management software, Cygnum, will schedule CQC inspections and give the inspectors access to essential information in the field, as well as capturing the information to support financial and resource planning. Cygnum’s reporting tool also allows inspectors to manage information in real time.
Mark Cullen, Head of Business Development at CACI said:
“Inspection services is a growing market in the UK and a business priority for CACI. This contract is an important milestone for us as the CQC provides some of the most important inspection services in all of England, ensuring that health and care services in this country are held to the highest standard. CACI will help CQC take its services to another level by creating a national resource planning solution and enabling an increased flow of information across the organisation. In time, the improved information resources will be an invaluable support for the CQC’s further organisational development.”
CACI has recently signed large inspection contracts with Ofsted and the Civil Aviation Authority.
