Steel specialist OneSteel has extended an
existing IT services contract with CSC for at least another three
years at a potential value of AU$50 million.
OneSteel has had a relationship with CSC since the steel giant
was spun off from BHP in 2001, according to a statement issued by
the IT services company this morning.
"The new three-year contract, which has options for another
two years, has a total value of AU$50 million if all options are
exercised," CSC said.
In CSC's statement, OneSteel general manager of eCommerce and
Information Technology, Michael Dines, said alternatives to keeping
CSC on board had been explored.
"With our IT services contract coming up for renewal, OneSteel
embarked on a detailed evaluation of possible outsourcing
providers," he said.
ZDNet Australia is seeking further information from OneSteel
about the timing of the renewal and other details.
