Sigma receives assignment from Danish Ministry of Social Affairs
Sigma has received an assignment to develop a model for planning of programs for the senile and their relatives in cooperation with ten Danish municipalities. The assignment is estimated to amount to nearly DKK 10 M.
"The assignment is confirmation of the quality of the work that our consultants have carried out in the public sector during the past five years. We have accrued a unique knowledge within the social services field through a long line of successful projects, with significant results for the inhabitants as well as the employees and management within the public sector. The assignment is Connector's largest to date and proves that our focus of quality yields results," says Finn Svenning Rasmussen, President of Sigma's Connector subsidiary. Through the project Sigma will create a common model for the ten Danish municipalities, but which can also be used by all municipalities in the country. The aim is to create a common procedure for work with the senile and their relatives. Major importance is placed on coordination between municipal, private and voluntary interests. Sigma has a longstanding cooperation with the Ministry of Social Affairs in Denmark, including development of a management concept for elderly care, a cooperation model for parties involved in the senility area in a Danish county and a concept for controlling work training in the municipalities.
