1Spatial and Version 1 win multiyear contract with Defra


Sharing is Caring

Cambridge, UK, 3rd June 2021, (www.1spatial.com) 1Spatial, the global geospatial software and solutions company, is delighted to announce that, following a competitive tender and in collaboration with Version 1 (a global leader in IT services and solutions), it has signed a multiyear contract with the Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) to provide a managed service for the Rural Payments Agency's (RPA) Rural Payments Service and Land Management System (LMS).

The contract will provide a recurring managed service enabling Defra and the Rural Payments Agency to deliver its current Basic Payment and Countryside Stewardship Schemes. In addition, and importantly, this new contract enables 1Spatial and Version 1 to support RPA and DEFRA through Agricultural Transition.

1Spatial has worked with RPA over the past five years to support and develop its Land Management System, an ecosystem of IT components, processes and data, including 1Spatial's 1Integrate software. The LMS is RPA's key control system used as a remote sensing monitoring tool and to master the land registration data used for subsidy scheme validation and agricultural policy implementation.

Commenting on the contract award, 1Spatial CEO, Claire Milverton, said: "We are delighted to build on our work with Defra and the Rural Payments Agency on their Land Management System and to be an integral part in the important transition of developing services through Agricultural Transition.

"The new contract highlights the world leading geospatial capabilities of 1Spatial, enabling RPA to use 1Spatial's unique software and expertise to master their land registration data used for subsidy scheme validation and agricultural policy implementation."

Version 1 UK Sales Director, Conor McColgan, added: “To have our service – and our partnership with 1Spatial - validated through this competitive tender is extremely pleasing. The new contract shows the value our partnership can bring to not only supporting existing services, but in the exciting transformational agenda underway at DEFRA which only strengthens our already leading role in the agricultural government sector.”
