Fujitsu specialist staff to work on Highland contract

IT company Fujitsu will bring in specialist staff on a full-time basis to try to get its £70m contract with Highland Council back on track.

Representatives from the company met with officials and councillors on Monday to discuss problems with the roll-out of new computers.

Two new deadlines have been set for when they will need to be in place.

Resources committee chairwoman Caroline Wilson said the meeting had been positive.

Last week, councillors heard 15% of Fujistu's work at council offices and about 40% in schools had been completed.

The Japanese IT giant won a contract last year to replace and maintain technology, including computers and printers, in the local authority's schools and offices.
