Oil and Gas Authority selects Littlefish as new IT services integrator

12/10/2017


The Oil and Gas Authority (OGA), the organisation responsible for regulating, influencing and promoting the UK oil and gas industry in order to maximise the economic recovery of the UK’s oil and gas resources, has selected Littlefish, a ‘disruptor’ in the managed IT services market, as its Service Integration and Management (SIAM) provider.

As part of the two-year deal, procured through G-Cloud, Littlefish will be responsible for the successful operation of the OGA’s core IT services, incorporating Service Desk, end user computing, managed infrastructure services and the service management office.

Prior to the agreement, the OGA’s IT provision was delivered as a shared service with the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS). Since becoming an independent government company (GovCo) in October 2016, the OGA sought to develop its own IT services within a set timeframe.

Littlefish was successful in securing the contract with the OGA. The decision to select Littlefish was made because the OGA was confident that Littlefish would mobilise rapidly and successfully deliver on its tender submission, as well as having the flexibility to meet the future IT service requirements of the organisation and its users.

“Gaining control of our IT service was key for us to stand on our own two feet and enable the organisation to meet its obligations,” said David Wilson, the OGA’s Head of Procurement & IT Services. “Littlefish proved itself to be capable, flexible and agile, and the right fit for us. From the initial engagements and through their references we were confident they would be the ideal partner. So far, we have completed the transition phase, moving in to early life support, and it has been seamless.”

Littlefish is now managing the OGA’s entire infrastructure for end to end services, either directly or as service integration lead, supporting 165 users across London and Aberdeen.

“We are very excited to be working with the OGA,” said Dave Aspindle, Head of Public Sector of Littlefish. “This is another example of a public sector customer engagement where we demonstrate our service quality and capability to users, not only in Service Desk but across the entire IT service ecosystem.”
