Ga. abandons outsourcing plan

Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue has canceled the state's 10-year, $1.8 billion telecommunications outsourcing project. The decision follows the formation of a task force by the governor Jan. 30 to review the project.

Perdue canceled the contract so the task force could review the state's telecommunications needs without being encumbered by the award process.

The task force will study alternatives for the state to achieve some of the objectives of the project, including more reliable and less costly high-speed networks.

EDS Corp. of Plano, Texas, was the only bidder on the CCOP contract. IBM Corp. of Armonk, N.Y., pulled out earlier.
