Oil and Gas Authority picks Littlefish for SIAM role

Littlefish will deliver core IT service and integration to OGA users as part of a two-year deal through G-Cloud


The Oil and Gas Authority (OGA), which regulates and promotes the UK’s oil and gas industry is to work with Littlefish as its Service Integration and Management (SIAM) provider.

As part of the two-year deal, procured through G-Cloud, Littlefish, an SME, 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.

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

Littlefish is now managing the OGA’s entire infrastructure for end to end services, either directly or as a service integration lead, supporting 165 users across London and Aberdeen. The OGA said it was convinced that Littlefish would mobilise rapidly and successfully deliver on its tender submission, as well as have 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.”
