DWP ends Fujitsu thin-client contract

The Department for Work and Pensions has terminated a contract with the company, which was agreed in 2010 to manage its 140,000 desktops

The Department for Work and Pensions has terminated a contract with Fujitsu to manage its desktop computers and replace its PCs with thin clients.

The six-year deal, agreed in 2010, was for Fujitsu to manage 140,000 desktops for the department's entire workforce and develop a thin-client system.

Under the deal, Fujitsu was to provide the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) with thin-client machines to replace its desktop PCs, a move Fujitsu said would generate tens of millions of pounds in savings on energy costs.
