Intergen secures NZ$ 12M ‘Cohesion’ contract with Ministry for Primary Industries New Zealand

18 May 2015

Intergen has announced that it has secured a contract to provide its cloud based and proprietary Enterprise Content Management service ‘Cohesion’ to the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) in New Zealand.

The contract has an estimated NZ$12m value over a 6 year contract term. Under the MPI contract Intergen will use its proprietary Cohesion, Enterprise Content Management solution to provide electronic document and records management as a service.  

Cohesion is one of three solutions available to public sector agencies as part of the New Zealand Government’s all-of-government enterprise content management services (ECMS) panel, established in November 2013. MPI established the government panel, in conjunction with the Department of Internal Affairs (DIA) and other government agencies. The government contract is now managed by DIA as the Lead Agency. MPI has selected Intergen as their provider from the three suppliers available to government agencies under the government panel.

Commenting on the contract award, Intergen Chief Executive Officer, Mr Simon Bright said: “New Zealand Government departments are increasingly electing to shift their Enterprise Content Management solutions to an ‘as a service’ model.   Intergen are delighted to have been selected by MPI to provide this service. It is a fantastic outcome and I would like to thank MPI for their trust.  

The Cohesion service is a very integral part of the Intergen company growth strategy and we have committed substantial resources to its development and positioning in New Zealand.  We are confident that providing this service to MPI will provide Intergen with exceptional credibility and competitive advantage, and I would personally like to see Cohesion used across all of New Zealand Government during the coming years.
