Kmart extends outsourcing contract with CSC

Five-year deal inked worth $36.4 million

IT outsourcing company CSC has anchored a five-year contract extension with retailer Kmart worth $36.4 million.

Under the deal, CSC will keep providing IT infrastructure systems and operations support services across 400 Kmart and Kmart Tyre and Auto stores, adding onto the 2004 deal CSC signed with the Coles Group, which owned Kmart at the time.

“CSC has worked hard to build a strong relationship with Kmart and the professionalism and quality of service from them has been a contributing factor in this major decision,” Ian Baily, chief operating officer of Kmart, said.

“We are working closely together and leveraging skills to drive improvements that benefit both companies.”

Wesfarmers acquired Kmart from the Coles Group in 2007.
