Johnson Controls Extends International Deal With CSC

27 September 2000

Leading the Way in Global Management Solutions; Johnson Controls Extends International Deal With CSC
    ATLANTA, Sept. 26 Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC) has
re-enforced the trend toward total outsourcing of facilities management
services, with the award of its UK portfolio to Johnson Controls
the world leader in Integrated Facility Management Services.  This builds on
the five-year global deal signed by the two organizations in February 2000.
    Johnson Controls will deliver streamlined integrated facility management
processes and services at CSC-controlled facilities by providing building
maintenance, security, energy management, catering and reception services.
Workplace performance, benchmarking and financial assessments will be
completed across CSC operations worldwide.
    "Providing CSC, one of the world's largest suppliers of IT services, with
our full scope of integrated facility management services is an exciting
opportunity for Johnson Controls," states Roy Cloudsdale, Vice President of
Global Marketing and Business Development, Johnson Controls, Integrated
Facility Management.
    The UK addendum to the global contract comprises 37 properties and will
have CSC outsourcing a total of 42 staff to Johnson Controls.  The portfolio
of countries now covered includes North America (since February 2000), Denmark
and Holland, where a four-year relationship with CSC exists.  The deal
reflects Johnson Controls expertise in the management of complex international
outsourcing projects.
    Under the five-year global agreement, Johnson Controls aims to
significantly reduce CSC's total cost of occupancy, guaranteeing savings as
part of the deal and improving facility operations.
    "Our new strategic relationship will help integrate CSC's facility
management functions worldwide by streamlining processes and service delivery.
This in turn will contribute to significant productivity and performance
gains, while driving down costs, allowing CSC to concentrate on its core
competencies," says Don Kenny, Managing Director, Johnson Controls, IFM UK.
    Niels J. Bergsted, UK Chief Financial Officer, CSC said, "We are pleased
to build on the relationship that has developed over the last two years
between other CSC organizations in Europe and the U.S. and Johnson Controls.
We believe that outsourcing of facility management is the best way to support
our future business objectives and at the same time deliver a quality service
and environment to our employees and customers."
    "Johnson Controls ability to provide total management solutions stems from
our breadth of experience and international knowledge. I am confident we will
continue to see a growing trend among multi-national companies to outsource
their facilities management business, as they become increasingly aware of the
benefits of outsourcing, and we are looking forward to the opportunities this
will present," states Robert Netolicka, President, Johnson Controls,
Integrated Facility Management.
