These comments from Computing Magazine say much about what has been going on in CSC. They refer to obfusaction around job reductions in the UK.
An extract follows:-
Martyn Hart, chair of the National Outsourcing Association (NOA), must rue the day he added his voice to the shouting match over CSC’s UK job cuts. First, he appeared to suggest that he thought the layoffs were a good thing. Several days later – after the fuss had died down – Hart said that, no, he didn’t think the cuts were a good thing after all: that was outrageous media spin.
.............Consider the evidence: the MoD's about to hand CSC £400m to look after squaddies' pensions and personnel files. Does that sound like an unhappy customer to you? OK, so the MoD deal is worth four times the cap on government IT spending. And, OK, so CSC has never signed Francis Maude's Memorandum of Understanding – unlike every other major supplier to the government. And, OK, Parliament's Public Accounts Committee said CSC shouldn't work for the government. And, OK, CSC wanted to do one third of the NHS Lorenzo work for two thirds of the original cost, doubling the cost of the remaining work. And, OK, NHS negotiations remain stalled, But, you know, details, details... It's not like it's an outrage or anything....................
