AIS Contract Negotiations Committee

In July, 2000 the University of Alberta outsourced the development and production of its AIS PeopleSoft Systems to IBM Global Services and TkMC for an initial five year period. With the contract due for renewal on July 1, 2005, an AIS Contract Review Committee was created with the mandate to review the development and production performance over the past four years and to make recommendations for the next five years.

Among the recommendations that came out of the report were to retain IBM Global Services for production and to explore new models for the development side.

The University is currently engaged in negotiations with IBM Global Services for the renewal of the production contract and the creation of a new development model.
