Munich, Jul 10, 2006, Siemens Business Services today announced that it has been awarded a major new contract in the UK to develop a new payment and accounting system for the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP). The contract is worth 85 million euros (59 million GBP) and is scheduled to run to 2010.
