UTMB to end IT contract; 54 jobs on the line

Galveston County Daily News, Oct. 10, 2006http://news.galvestondailynews.com/story.lasso?ewcd=8eb43e687fbd02a7 Atos Origin said it would lay off 54 island employees, citing the University of Texas Medical Branch’s decision to end a $12 million-a-year information technology contract with the company. But company and university officials say it’s not as bad as it sounds. About two-thirds of Atos Origin employees on the island will be eligible for in-house IT jobs at the campus. Still, it’s the latest example of how belt-tightening at the institution is affecting the local workforce.
