The United States Agency for International Development awards a consortium with Bull a $ 10 million IT services contract to modernize Egyptian tax administration
4, 2008 -
A consortium set up by Bull with the US affiliate of Raya, the leading Egyptian IT services provider, has won a contract for the procurement, development, customization and implementation of an integrated tax management and administration system for the Egyptian Tax Authority. The contract was awarded through the TAPR II Project being implemented by BearingPoint and is financed by the United States Agency for International Development. Part of the country's fiscal reform and modernization programme, the goal of this particular component is to improve the efficiency of tax administration in Egypt.
The contract is valued at some $ 10 million for the two partners - Bull and Raya -, a long time partner of the Ministry of Finance, providing IT Services and contract management. Bull's share represents around 80%.
Delivering this project involves many thousands of manpower days of services. The project features e-ris, Bull's comprehensive solution for Tax Administrations aimed at improving, via automation and the use of leading edge technologies, the reliability and efficiency of their tax collection processes. Bull's e-ris' flexibility will enable the Tax Authority to become the true owner of the system - reducing their dependence on contracted suppliers or out-sourced maintenance services.
"This success consolidates Bull's position when it comes to modernization projects for public sector information systems" explained Luc Saint-Jeannet, Vice-President International Operations, Bull. "The partnership we entered into with Raya and BearingPoint enabled us to present a truly integrated configuration with the potential for developing a reliable, state-of-the-art solution that will operate on a grand scale, while meeting the modernization challenges of the Egyptian Ministry of Finance. Bull's expertise in tax and customs modernization projects across the world and the completeness of its e-ris solution were decisive for us and the Ministry of Finance".
