Bluescope extends deal with CSC

Companies sign four-year extension of long-standing partnership

BlueScope Steel has gifted CSC a four-year contract renewal for the delivery of IT services.

The deal is an extension of an arrangement that goes back to May 2000 and involves CSC providing the resource giant with consulting, applications development, systems integration, end user services and disaster recovery.

BlueScope Steel chief information officer, Andrew Baker, said in a statement that the company had been pleased with the relationship.

“The further cost saving initiatives and service delivery improvements we plan to deliver with CSC are important to us,” he said. “This new contract recognises the benefit of working with CSC and we look forward to continuing our relationship.”

In December, CSC netted an $8 million contract with the Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) to provide mainframe and network communications services.

The contract runs until 2013 and is an extension of an existing arrangement, plus the implementation of a new disaster recovery system.

In June, financial services giant AMP entered into a revised $150 million outsourcing contract over six-years with CSC, with the option for additional services to a total of $300 million.

And in May, the Western Australia Police entered into two five-year IT service contracts with CSC for application support and consulting services.

Both deals came after CSC joined a throng of ICT companies in announcing staff cuts in April. Since the economy began picking up, however, CSC has signaled its intentions to increase its headcount.
