Chicago-based brokerage giant Aon Corp. and California-based Computer Sciences Corp. (CSC) announced that they have agreed to negotiate the outsourcing of the majority of Aon’s U.S. information technology (IT) infrastructure. The transition to CSC would begin in fall 2004, subject to completing a final contract. Aon said the move would save the company $300 million over seven years. CSC indicated that it expects the contract to generate in excess of $600 million in revenue over the life of the agreement, which covers Aon’s U.S. insurance brokerage and consulting business units. Describing the scope of the agreement the bulletin noted that it includes “data centers, telecommunications and data networks, desktop support, related help desk services and various IT support functions.” It indicated that “these areas employ about 600 people across the United States, including contractors. Most of the affected employees are expected to transition to CSC. Aon will keep responsibility for IT strategy and leadership, architecture and application development and maintenance.”
