Capgemini Government Solutions LLC has won a $27.9 million contract to upgrade information technology systems for the state of Nevada.
Specifically, the three-year contract calls for Capgemini to replace existing systems and technologies and deliver an unemployment insurance modernization solution for Nevada’s Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation, according to a company statement released May 10.
Capgemini, in collaboration with Oracle Corp., will modernize the systems necessary to conduct employer contributions, constituent benefits claims, eligibility determination and benefits payments.
The solution includes Oracle’s Enterprise Taxation Management software that enables revenue management authorities to improve the revenue collection and billing processes while quickly responding to federal regulatory changes.
The installation will help improve the state agency’s processes to adjudicate claims more efficiently and accurately, deliver more timely payment of benefits and increase the visibility and integrity of the amounts and durations of the payments, the statement said.
Capgemini Government Solutions, of Herndon, Va., was formed in 2002 as an independent operating division of Capgemini to offer U.S. government agencies consulting and IT expertise.
Capgemini Government Solutions is a member of the Capgemini Group, a worldwide provider of consulting, technology and outsourcing services. The company is based in Paris.
