ECB goes shopping

European Central Bank's extensive shopping list for 2003 is now available on the European Union's public procurement website. The site reveals that the ECB is planning major investments in IT infrastructure to create new disaster backup sites and expand the ECB's IT network to include the accession countries.

The ECB is also looking for consultants to help "explore strategic outsourcing decisions" - probably not good news for the Eurosystem's 56,000 staff.
