Indian outsourcers vie for $1 bn BP deal: Report
Bangalore: India`s top outsourcers, Tata Consultancy Services and Infosys Technologies are vying with global rivals for up to USD 1 billion deal from oil major BP, a media report said on Friday.
Wipro, India`s No. 3 IT firm, and Mahindra Satyam are also competing with IBM and Accenture for the contract to be awarded in August, the newspaper said, citing an unnamed person with knowledge of the matter.
A spokeswoman at Infosys declined comment on the report, while Tata Consultancy spokesman said the company does not comment on customer specific issues. Officials at Wipro and Satyam could not be immediately reached.
BP, which has outsourced most of its application development, system integration and infrastructure management works, to about 30 firms including IBM, Accenture, Mahindra Satyam and Infosys, wants to bring down the number of vendors, the paper said.
A BP spokesman told the media the company was reviewing its IT services providers and the process was nearing an end, but he would not confirm numbers of current or future technology service providers.
