Unisys has signed a five-year-long IT outsourcing contract with the city of Minneapolis.

As part of the $48 million (£24 million) contract Unisys will provide the city with outsourcing services such as data centre management and the restructuring of its IT infrastructure.

Other services contracted include technology planning, end-user support and network management, which will benefit all of the city's government from the mayor's office to the police and fire departments.

Lynn Willenbring, chief information officer for city of Minneapolis, said: "Our outsourcing relationship with Unisys will enable the city government to realise significant operational efficiencies and IT cost savings."

She added that by "capitalising" on Unisys' "expertise" in IT management the city will be able to focus on its internal IT resources in order to benefit Minneapolis' citizens and businesses.

Unisys manages the city's virtualised server from a Minnesota-based data centre, which makes use of green technology.

The IT outsourcing firm has a long-standing relationship with the US city, and under other agreements will continue providing infrastructure support for "critical applications and facilities" including its 911 emergency and 311 non-emerging calls.
