Examples of our customers
The UK Ministry of Defence – Support Chain Information Services (SCIS)
In 2010, MoD awarded Boeing the £800million Future Logistic Information Services (FLIS) contract as its 10-year Support Chain Information Services (SCIS) Delivery Partner. This delivers financial efficiencies of more than £160 million over the life of the contract. SCIS is a partnering arrangement between the MoD and Boeing Defence UK to improve the reliability and capability of the logistic information systems and services that deliver engineering, supply chain and business intelligence information. It replaced more than 120 legacy contracts and included the transfer of 233 staff from the MOD to Boeing.
The role of the SCIS delivery partnership is to enhance the exploitation of logistic and engineering information for better decision making at all levels, especially by those in front-line commands. It is a single accountable point of delivery for logistic information services. This includes the deployed space and, where appropriate, the industry base. The SCIS partnership has, in particular, led the way in simultaneously achieving the BS11000 standard (collaborative business relationships) across both sides of the partnership.
Boeing provides secure, stable and resilient SCIS services by assisting the MoD in streamlining and optimising its end-to-end logistics information system into an agile and effective capability that underpins the support chain. In a very short time it has started to optimise the logistic information capability.
These activities included:
- Migration of information services from 12 MOD sites to new, purpose built data centres
- Data centre improvements
- Standard ITIL Service Management implementation
- Service Desk consolidation
- Retirement or optimisation of legacy applications, where possible
Now in the next phase of the programme, it is continuing the modernisation of the IT while delivering transformation of Information Services to the customer, starting with the base inventory warehousing environment. Boeing will continue to work ever closer with its partner to improve its responsiveness and agility to meet the evolving requirement of the end user.
Staffordshire Police – Strategic IT Partner
On February 25, 2016, the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner in Staffordshire awarded a contract to Boeing to become the Strategic IT Partner for Staffordshire Police. The contract will dramatically improve the capability and capacity of Staffordshire Police and save money compared to the current annual running costs for IT for the Police.
Boeing will bring transformational capability to Staffordshire Police, providing new cutting edge technology and greater opportunities to work more effectively with partner organisations and local communities - as well as greater capability in fighting crime.
As part of the work by the Strategic IT Partner, nearly 400 outdated IT systems used by police in Staffordshire will be replaced with around 100 state-of-the-art ones to help police tackle changing crimes and changing threats.
The investment in technology and the Strategic IT Partner form part of work around the Police and Crime Commissioner’s Safer, Fairer, United Communities strategy www.staffordshire-pcc.gov.uk/saferfairerunited/.
