Shared Services Connected Ltd

At SSCL we deliver a range of high quality shared services for our Government and Police clients, enabling them to operate more efficiently and more effectively. We are helping to reduce costs whilst introducing innovative ways of doing things better – right across the public sector in the UK.

Our vision for transforming public services

The creation of our shared service built on a common ERP platform is the first step on a journey to transform public services. The greater longer term benefit is that we will be able to provide clients with a unique insight into how Government works, its spend, its people and ultimately the ability to connect to other Government departments’ operational systems. This will enable benchmarking between Government departments, more effective management of activities such as procurement, supporting managers to identify how to improve productivity and eliminate waste.

The move to SSCL is the beginning of this journey, creating a real opportunity to enable the transformation of public services. The savings that can be generated by achieving this will be greatly in excess of the initial transactional savings that we will deliver.

Our services

We provide Finance & Accounting, HR & Payroll and Procurement as well as specialist client-specific services. SSCL has four UK Centres of Excellence and, by streamlining and modernising systems and processes in the back office, we are transforming the way these services are delivered - providing better value for our clients and better value for the UK taxpayer.

A unique joint venture

SSCL is a unique joint venture between the Cabinet Office and Sopra Steria and aims to deliver £1billion of savings for Government and Police by 2020. We bring together the best of public and private sector ways of working to drive change and transform services.

SSCL clients

Our Government clients include: the Department for Work and Pensions, the Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs, the Environment Agency and the Ministry of Justice. At the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) we have 55,000 service users including Police officers and Police staff. As well as our core activities, we also deliver additional Police-specific services.
