IT services at Gloucester City Council have been outsourced to a private firm.
Councillors approved plans for the cost-cutting measure at a meeting tonight.
All of the council’s IT facilities will be managed by Civica in a bid to save £100,000 per year.
The contract is effective from March 1.
Councillor Gordon Taylor (C, Abbey) told fellow councillors that the council must ensure it has enough ‘project days’ in the contract to get all of the council’s IT jobs done.
Councillor Fred Wood, cabinet member for performance and resources, said: “There will be some very strong performance measures in this. There are a lot of project days that have been put into it. We have been told that there is enough for what the council needs.”
