Capgemini Awarded Three-Year Contract to Help Increasing Efficiency and Accuracy of Unemployment Insurance Administration for Nevada Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation.

Paris, France, New York, US, May 10, 2010 – Capgemini Government Solutions LLC, a member of the Capgemini Group, one of the world’s foremost providers of consulting, technology and outsourcing services, today announced it has been awarded a three-year, $27.9 million (approx. €20 million) contract to deliver an Unemployment Insurance Modernization (UIM) solution to Nevada’s Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation (DETR), which will replace existing systems and technologies to better serve the citizens of Nevada.  The solution includes Oracle’s Enterprise Taxation Management software that can enable revenue management authorities to improve the revenue collection and billing processes, while quickly responding to federal regulatory changes.

This solution expands Capgemini’s commitment to the public sector by increasing transparency, time savings and resource efficiency for the state of Nevada, which is keenly focused on enhancing services provided to their citizens. Capgemini, in collaboration with Oracle, will modernize the systems necessary to conduct employer contributions, constituent benefits claims, eligibility determination and benefits payments.

“Higher unemployment, combined with changes in federal legislation, has impacted our ability to keep up with operations and technology changes associated with tax and revenue management and compliance,” said Larry Mosley, director, Nevada Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation. “Working collaboratively with Capgemini on this new solution will address these challenges so the DETR can better streamline operations, reduce costs and better serve the citizens of Nevada.”

Under the contract, Capgemini will deliver a solution to help improve DETR processes to adjudicate claims more efficiently and accurately, deliver more timely payment of benefits to claim applicants and increase the visibility and integrity of the amounts and durations of the payments.

“Capgemini provides leading practices and experience to improve DETR’s Unemployment Insurance processes with resources from across our consulting and technology disciplines,” said Joe Moye, chief executive officer, Capgemini Government Solutions LLC. “Our collective goal in working with the state of Nevada is to improve their revenue and benefits management systems, while achieving an overall lower cost of technology operations. Our approach, combined with our deep knowledge of state and local municipalities, can enable the DETR to swiftly implement changes to expand the department’s services and programs for the citizens of Nevada.”
