Barclays has confirmed that it is to outsource its desktop support to EDS in a $350m (£211m) deal, as exclusively revealed by vnunet.com in April.
The seven-year deal will see 77 Barclays IT staff transfer to the services giant, as the Barclays Group looks to standardise its desktops in time for a move to new headquarters.
EDS takes over 41,700 desktops across the Barclays Group with immediate effect.
The bank recently decided not to go through with a proposed £100m-a-year deal with IBM Global Services, opting instead to keep the work in-house.
Barclays Group no longer intends to outsource its entire 'Enable' IT division, according to chief operating officer Toby Broome.
"It makes sense on some occasions, but outsourcing is not a end in itself," he said. "We don't have a goal to outsource but will consider it when it fits our needs."
Barclays will move to new offices in London's Canary Wharf in late 2004.
