Description of the contract

HMRC is exploring options for the delivery of Customer Relationship Management (“CRM”) functionality to: • receive the print batch files from HMRC’s mainframe systems, and apply rules based upon HMRC’s customer analytics and also variables within the print file; • take the outputs of HMRC’s customer analytics and enable that information to be used in rules set within the CRM system – determining the design of core customer products and also the delivery channel, diverting delivery to online and other channels where required; • allow provision for HMRC to develop, design, test and deploy a set of flexible rules which impact upon each customer communications. The rule sets will be different depending on which customer communication product is impacted; • provide HMRC with ownership of the rules so that changes can be made to impact the design and delivery of products in real time; • have the capacity to handle the volumes and peaks of outputs delivered by existing HMRC systems, without causing a delay to the production of mass postal outputs. The option of cloud delivery has been discounted at this stage, as our working assumption is that the solution must be secure within the HMRC estate. The requirement is likely to be two lots: 1. Provision of an innovative CRM system to meet HMRC’s business requirement as outlined above. 2. Configuration/design of SAP CRM (which HMRC already has within its IT Estate), to meet HMRC’s business requirement as outlined above. Suppliers will be asked for their response to both/either of the lots, and HMRC will use the information provided to determine the optimal route forward. HMRC’s IT estate is currently managed by the Department’s strategic IT supplier ASPIRE and IT Solutions Delivery which provides an in-house IT capability. It is planned that ASPIRE will provide a service integration role to HMRC and further information about the practical implications of this approach will be shared at the market engagement event.
