Whitbread extends IT support contract with CSC in £26m deal

Whitbread has signed a £26m deal extending its IT contract with Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC).

The five-and-a-half-year agreement will provide Whitbread with India-based applications support through CSC's World Sourcing operation until March 2012.

The support covers Whitbread's central information systems and technology, including data centre services, e-mail, internet and intranet.

Ben Wishart, group IT director for Whitbread Group, said that after the recent changes in company structure a new contract was needed.

"It is a credit to CSC that they were able to present a more flexible model. We find CSC to be client-orientated and delivery focused and we look forward to continuing to work successfully together," he added.

The deal supersedes the original contract, which was signed in 2004, and brings the total value of the partnership to £120m since 2000.
