The Office for National Statistics has picked Xansa to sort out its IT systems.

The contract is worth £75m. The ONS had problems with the last census when one million men appeared to have disappeared, the office had to issue a series of corrections.

The ONS was formed in 1996 through the merger of the Central Statistical Office and the Office of Population Censuses and Surveys. Many systems from the two departments are still not properly integrated.

Dayantha Joshua, Director Information Management ONS, credited Xansa with a good track record at "large transformation programmes" and praised the company's "flexibility, responsiveness and pragmatism".

Alastair Cox, chief exec at Xansa, said in a statement:"Being chosen as the ONS strategic IT transformation partner shows our strengths in delivering major transformation programmes by working in partnership with our clients."
