DXC Technology has announced its collaboration with Junta de Castilla y Leon (JCyL), a public sector organization in Spain, to digitally transform its procurement processes using AI-powered automation.
This makes JCyL the first local government region in Spain to implement robotic process automation, significantly reducing the time spent on administrative tasks related to public contracting.
With the implementation, government procurement contracts and procedures between JCyL, bidders, and contractors can now be processed digitally. As JCyL handles over 22,000 files, messages, and communications for contracts each year, this transformation will greatly streamline the management of public sector contracts in the region, saving valuable time and resources.
Utilizing DXC’s AI solutions, JCyL can automate a significant portion of its contractual processes instantly and accurately, operating around the clock. As part of the collaboration, DXC has integrated platforms, administration tools, and public administration databases to establish a centralized hub for procurement management.
The next phase of the project, scheduled for September 2023, will see DXC implementing robotics to fully automate the processing of over 300 contracts with an estimated value exceeding 200 million euros, covering various sectors such as electricity suppliers and postal services.
Jorge Martinez Fernandez, Head of the Procurement Rationalization Service at Junta de Castilla y Leon, highlighted that automating processes will allow public sector employees to focus their efforts on the core objectives of public administration.
Juan Parra, General Manager at DXC Technology Iberia, emphasized DXC’s longstanding partnership with the Spanish government and its commitment to supporting public sector organizations in their digital transformation journeys.
