SciSys wins key UK Government Climate Change project

SciSys plc (stock code: SSY), the specialist supplier of bespoke software systems, IT based solutions and support services to the public, environment, utilities, media, broadcast, space, defence and transport sectors is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a circa £3.5m contract with the Environment Agency to build and support a strategically important web based solution to manage the requirements of the Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC) Scheme.

The CRC scheme is part of the UK Government’s initiative to tackle Climate Change using a new domestic ‘cap and trade’ approach to reduce energy usage from large organisations in the private and public sectors. The scheme is central to the UK Government’s programme for meeting its Greenhouse Gas reduction targets. The solution development phase is likely to last for 15 months with SciSys providing ongoing support for a further 21 months with an option to extend for a further 2 years.

This new contract further strengthens the relationship between the two organisations and builds on the work SciSys has been undertaking for the Environment Agency over several years in helping them develop new solutions to meet their Better Regulation objectives.

Chairman Mike Love commented “We are delighted to be working on behalf of the Environment Agency on this important Climate Change project. Delivering the CRC solution will further strengthen our position as a leading provider of Environmental business solutions”.
