The Met Office to use Equiniti ICS for payroll services

The Met Office has signed a three-year contract with Equiniti ICS to provide a fully managed payroll service for its 1,900 employees.

The service will provide the Met Office with improved service processes and enhanced governance, while satisfying the stringent security requirements of the organisation.

A spokesperson from the Met Office said: “The payroll project group at the Met Office had many factors to consider when contracting a payroll provider including security, reliability and value for money.

“Equiniti ICS has ticked all these boxes, as well as working with us to deliver the project on time and on budget and we look forward to establishing a productive relationship going forward.”

Alan Foley, director of Equiniti ICS, added: “This is another significant contract win for Equiniti ICS as it further cements our position as a leading software and services provider within the public sector.

“We worked closely with the Met Office to enhance process efficiencies, improve reporting capabilities, and introduce sophisticated interfaces for the electronic exchange of data.”
