The Department of Health has extended its IT outsourcing contract with CSC for two additional years, in a £20m deal.

The IT services firm has provided the DoH with infrastructure and application support services for its 4,500 staff since 2002. The new extension will take the contract up to 2011.

DoH chief information officer Beverley Bryant said: "Information services in the Department of Health have changed significantly over the last two years. Our ethos is all about customer focus and CSC has worked hard with us to present a common brand and a seamless service to our customers. They have worked hard to ensure that their agenda is aligned to match the changing needs of the department."

CSC is also the lead contractor for the NHS’s £12.4bn National Programme for IT in three out of five regions.

Earlier this month, CSC secured a £140m business process outsourcing contract with joint Home Office and Foreign Office body UKvisas, adding to its presence elsewhere in the UK public sector.
