Oxygen to breathe fresh air into police accounts

$3 million deal over nine years

Oxygen has won a $3 million, nine-year contract with the New Zealand Police to manage the police's accounts payable data entry processing.

The contract is for a three-year term with two further three-year rights of renewal and Oxygen will take over from NZ Police's in-house national accounts processing centre staff.

A police spokeswoman says "with electronic transactions having a steadily increasing impact on the accounts processing area, NZ Police considered it was appropriate to review our operation and available alternatives, which included considering external providers.

"As a result, in the medium-to-longer term, it was felt NZ Police's interests would be best served by linking with Oxygen."

The spokeswoman says nine of the former accounts processing centre staff have been redeployed within NZ Police and two took voluntary severance.
