UK airport authority BAA expects to save £8m over the next five years by outsourcing the management of its desktop infrastructure to IT services provider Computacenter.

The contract, which is worth £45m over the five-year period, includes the provision of hardware, software licences and IT services for around 10,000 desktops, and will come into effect on 1 April.

Computacenter will become responsible for a range of desktop services including maintenance, asset disposal, installations, moves and changes, replacing agreements that BAA had with a number of different suppliers.

Richard Rundle, BAA's group IT director, said, "We are constantly striving to find more cost-effective ways to manage our growing IT infrastructure.  

"By consolidating our desktop requirements into one end-to-end services contract, we expect to generate savings of around £1.6m per year, which represents a significant return on our investment.”
