Land Information will consider axing up to 78 jobs in its information technology department and transferring the work to an outsourcing company. Chief information officer Debbie Ward says the department is about to go to market for a single outsourcing supplier which would provide a wide range of services, including data centre management, development and maintenance of its Landonline computer system, and help-desk support.
The department already outsources some services - the contracts for which will expire this year - and will add several others, including application design and infrastructure management. The move will mean a change for Land Information's IT shop but no decisions have been made yet as to how staff will be affected, Ms Ward says.
