Printer ink maker Xerox has signed a memorandum of understanding with the UK government to provide document management services in order to achieve savings and make efficiency gains.

The agreement comes after a period of negotiation inaugurated by Conservative MP Francis Maude and led by the Cabinet Office's Efficiency and Reform Group.

Xerox will also provide business process outsourcing as part of the agreement, the firm said, working with departments like the Department for Work and Pensions.

"We're keen to continue playing a central role in the transformation of public services, which make a real difference to the lives of people in the UK every day," Alan Charnley, managing director of Xerox UK and Ireland, said.

"We value our relationship with UK government and are committed to working collaboratively to help transform the way government works by providing enhanced services to UK citizens at a lower cost."

Recently, a post on the Spectator magazine's Coffee House blog sais some MPs feel the decision to make them responsible for buying ink cartridges - instead of the House of Commons placing bulk orders - is unreasonable.
