TCS to expand UK operations
India's largest information technology services provider, Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), says it is expanding operations in Britain. A new facility at Liverpool is to be fully operational in July, with about 300 employees.
The new centre is to deliver government services requiring what is known as 'Impact Level 3 (IL3)' security constraints. TCS plans to use the facility to deliver services to the Home Office, following a multi-million, multi-year contract awarded in November 2012, to manage the technology needs and support services of the UK government's new Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).
