“The city of Minneapolis is cutting ties with the company behind its largest contract, IT provider Unisys, ending a relationship ultimately worth about $147 million to the Pennsylvania-based firm.
The city has outsourced much of its IT services to Unisys since 2003, at an annual cost of about $13 million in recent years. Officials sought a new company for the work last year, however, amid concerns that the Unisys agreement was out of date and too rigid. The current contract expires in December.”
