UCSF's new tech contract will outsource jobs to India, layoff dozens in S.F. - Riley McDermid, SF Business Journal

UCSF will outsource dozens of jobs and lay off as many as 50 workers after signing a a five-year contract worth $50 million with Indian IT company HCL Technologies. "Given the fiscal challenges facing academic medicine, and the ability of outside vendors to provide high-quality IT services, UCSF’s review concluded that it was more economical and secure to partner with specialized vendors on those aspects of information technology that do not require close interaction with research, patient care or education," a university spokesperson told the Business Times. http://www.bizjournals.com/sanfrancisco/news/2016/10/27/ucsf-tech-contract-outsource-jobs-india.html
