The Computing report quoted two inside sources as saying that the outsourcing deal was not the idea of Aecom CIO Tom Peck, who did not want the outsourcing deal. The sources also claim that the deal was made primarily as a cost-saving exercise. Aecom’s IT department had become overstaffed, with the company carrying a lot of legacy IT baggage.
