IT consultancy Mason Advisory wins £3.7m government contract


Mason Advisory, a provider of IT Consultancy and Advisory Services, has been selected by the Home Office Digital, Data and Technology (DDaT) directorate to support the delivery of a new Strategic Operating Model (SOM).

Based at MediaCityUK, Mason Advisory was selected from more than 50 applicants as the preferred partner to deliver the £3.7m engagement across a two-year period.

The engagement will see Mason Advisory working with the DDaT programme team to commission, assure and support a programme of change across the merged Home Office Digital and Home Office Technology functions.

The engagement will require Mason Advisory to coordinate across the initiatives and engage with senior DDaT stakeholders including the Chief DDaT Officer and her senior management team.

“The ability to combine all of the workstreams that form a successful transformation rests heavily on understanding the human side of business change”, said Duncan Swan, Public Sector MD at Mason Advisory.

“We’re delighted to have been given this opportunity to help the Home Office transform its delivery capabilities – more than that, we’re already enjoying our initial interactions with the Home Office team and share a common goal of ensuring the Strategic Operating Model for DDaT is delivered successfully.”

At the end of June, the company was featured in the London Stock Exchange Group’s 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain 2019 and earlier this year was recognised by the Financial Times as one of the fastest growing companies in Europe and one of the leading management consultancies in the UK.

“This latest Government contract comes on the back of an exciting year for the company delivering projects for high-profile clients and receiving industry recognition. Success in business is hard earned; we are building on all that we have achieved thus far so that we continue to go from strength to strength,” said Swan.
