SciSys wins three year contract to deliver a modernised regulation programme

The Environment Agency has awarded SciSys a three year contract to
provide core services in support of the development and enhancement of
key regulation systems in England and Wales.

Approximately £15m is being budgeted for by the Environment Agency
to provide technological enhancements to enable improved and
streamlined delivery of regulation processes.
This latest agreement capitalises on
SciSys’ regulatory knowledge and experience, gained from existing
agreements with the Environment Agency. These have resulted in the
implementation of many key regulation business systems, including the
Permit Administration System (PAS), which is core to the Environment
Agency’s modernising regulation agenda.
Speaking today, Chris Bale, Director of Performance and Innovation at
the Environment Agency said, “SciSys has proven its ability to deliver
and maintain a robust and reliable infrastructure to support our
regulatory activities.
“This contract will make sure the
Environment Agency continues to benefit from this knowledge and
expertise, and at the same time, enjoy substantial cost savings through
the innovative design and implementation of improved regulatory
“We are working with the regulation team
at SciSys to use the latest in technology and thinking to radically
change our business processes and service delivery. This regulation
solution will release staff to genuinely add value to the process:
advising businesses on which regulations apply to them, educating them
on how to comply; encouraging a sense of corporate social
responsibility and so reducing the enforcement burden whilst improving
outcomes for the environment.”
Mark Hampson, SciSys Managing Director added, “I am very pleased the
Environment Agency has selected SciSys as a preferred strategic
partner. This is a reflection of the long term relationship we have
built with the Agency and our continued commitment to delivering
innovation and improvement for our customers and to the wider
Regulation market. SciSys has invested in and can deliver a unique and
technically innovative approach that supports the efficient ‘build
once, use many’ strategy that can be used to build and deploy
regulatory solutions within the Environment Agency rapidly and at a
much reduced cost. SciSys is committed to the goal of being a market
leader for Regulation. The award of this contract is clearly an
important milestone in the achievement of this goal.”
The SciSys regulation solution will
eventually be used to support the whole of the Environment Agency’s
regulatory obligations, ensuring staff have more time and resources to
fully evaluate permit applications and their implications, and for
managers to co-ordinate work-scheduling and resource-planning more
