Hitachi Consulting, a leading provider of management and IT consulting services and solutions for both government and business, announced today that it has been awarded a $3.8 million, multi-year contract with the U.S. Department of the Interior, Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) to develop and implement a financial assistance and social services case management system.
BIA's Human Services Program strives to improve the quality of life for individual Indians that live on or near Indian reservations and to protect the children, elderly and disabled from abuse and neglect. The program consists of direct funding and activities related to social services, welfare assistance, Indian child welfare, and program oversight. To administer and improve the overall effectiveness of the program, BIA has selected a Microsoft Dynamics CRM and SharePoint solution to replace an obsolete mainframe application and transition to a fully modernized case management environment.
"Hitachi Consulting is proud to work with BIA to improve the administration and delivery of this important program," said John Bush, Senior Vice President and U.S. Public Sector practice leader for Hitachi Consulting. "We are pleased that our extensive experience in Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 combined with our business process knowledge matched BIA's specific requirements. We look forward to leveraging these differentiators to help BIA strengthen its social services program and achieve new operating efficiencies."
"By using Dynamics CRM as a line of business application, public sector leaders and elected officials now have the ability to execute on their agency's mission effectively, while demonstrating immediate success and return on investment. We are pleased that the BIA will be working closely with Hitachi Consulting to deliver such an important mission critical application on the Dynamics CRM application," said Radu Burducea, Director of Dynamics CRM, Microsoft US Federal.
