Affiliated Computer Services Inc. has won a two-year, $25 million extension from Indianapolis/Marion County, Ind., for information technology outsourcing services, the company announced July 8.
The Dallas-based company has an existing seven-year, $80 million contract for IT outsourcing services with the city and county.
Under the terms of the new agreement, ACS will continue working with the city and county to improve the quality and level of IT services they offer their citizens and will deploy emerging technologies that enhance local government solutions.
ACS provides services to Web-enable various government functions and provides a wide range of other IT services. These include IT planning; data center management and operations; network, desktop and server management; annual technology refreshment planning, help-desk services, end-user support, disaster recovery planning and security.
Indianapolis/Marion County, which outsourced its IT services to the private sector in 1995, was one of the first local governments to take that approach, according to ACS.
