The Department of Municipalities and Agriculture has signed a 10-year contract with Injazat, the Abu Dhabi-based IT and business process outsourcing company.

Under the terms of the contract, Injazat will provide fully integrated IT services to the Department, including infrastructure management, application management, project management and delivery, extensive network support throughout Abu Dhabi, in addition to developing and supporting its ERP solutions.

Since the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between the two parties in March this year, joint teams have been collaborating to shape the service delivery model and lay the groundwork for transferring over 120 of the Department’s IT staff to Injazat.

The contract was signed by HE Dr Juaan Salem Al Daheri, chairman of Abu Dhabi Department of Municipalities and Agriculture and Ibrahim Mohamed Lari, CEO, Injazat Data Systems.

Commenting on the contract, Dr. Al Daheri said the Department is keen to leverage the private sector’s experience to develop its operations and enhance services. “As a major public Department, it is important that we support and accelerate the development and unprecedented economic growth taking place in Abu Dhabi, by providing prompt and efficient services.

"Giving Injazat Data Systems the responsibility of managing our IT services and operations will enable us to benefit from innovative solutions and leverage the considerable expertise of the company’s pool of professionals. This in turn will help us provide speedy and improved government services to the public and further reinforce Abu Dhabi’s development and progress.”

Welcoming the deal, Lari added: “We set clear goals and objectives for our services that will help the Department save costs, ensure higher flexibility, streamline its business operations and speed up public transactions.

“This agreement is in line with our vision of supporting our clients to realise improved value and benefit from existing and future investments in their IT systems and infrastructure,” he added.
