Fujitsu to lose three government deals
By Cloud Direct • 27 Dec 2013
Japanese multinational Fujitsu will lose three government outsourcing deals, according to media reports.
The IT firm will have their contracts for three operations terminated by the Cabinet Office, the Treasury and the Department of Environment and Climate Change (DECC), reports Computer Weekly.
Indeed, the news source believes DECC's outsourcing agreement with Fujitsu will end in April 2014 and will be replaced by a number of smaller tenders.
This is part of a process backed by the National Audit Office, which has called on the government to be more careful about ensuring it gets value for money from these types of contracts.
Although outsourcing has been proven to reduce expenditure for Whitehall departments, concerns have been consistently raised that procurement policies are letting the coalition down.
It was reported in September last year by Computer Weekly that Fujitsu had been placed on a blacklist by the government because of alleged poor performance.
