6/29/2006

Organizations to Provide Enterprise Investment Management Software and Services under New Contract.

ARLINGTON, VA - ProSight® Inc., the leader in Enterprise Investment Management, and Serco Inc., a major government Information Technology (IT) services provider, today announced that they have been selected to enable the Commonwealth of Virginia to more effectively manage its IT assets and investments.  Under a new contract issued by the Virginia Information Technologies Agency (VITA), the ProSight/Serco team will automate the IT investment management process, as well as other related functions, through the implementation of an integrated Enterprise Investment Management solution. 

The solution consisting of ProSight’s Project Portfolio Management and Resource Manager product suites combined with Serco’s integration and management services will improve the Commonwealth's ability to track IT expenditures and manage IT investments. Work performed under the contract will also help to:

Improve project management and oversight to increase project success rates and reduce project costs;

Improve analysis of the Commonwealth’s technology portfolio in order to better support IT investment decisions;

Establish a management information system to track the total amount spent on technology.

VITA is the Commonwealth's consolidated, centralized IT organization that has responsibility for statewide operation of IT infrastructure, governance of IT investments, and procurement of technology products/services.

The Commonwealth of Virginia is one of the leading states in developing and implementing technology solutions to increase efficiencies and better assist its constituents, said Mike Roberts, Vice President, ProSight. This investment management project by VITA is just another example of the forward thinking nature of the Commonwealth.  We are honored to be working with Serco a clear leader in systems integration and the Commonwealth on this initiative.

Leveraging the ProSight solution, we will implement a broad-based system that enables both strategic and tactical investment management, said Al Rouse, Vice President, Serco. The initial rollout will take place in October and will eventually reach all Commonwealth employees involved in IT investment management statewide. Once completed, the comprehensive capabilities of this project should serve as a model for deployment in other states across the country.
