Syracuse, NY - National Grid has told at least 200 employees in Syracuse that their jobs could be outsourced over the next year, according to employees.

The utility is seeking vendors to take over much of its information services work, which includes software programming, computer networking and similar functions, employees said.

A company vice president told employees at a meeting earlier this month that vendors could be selected from either the United States or overseas, according to employees who were there and spoke on the condition that their names not be published.

The jobs of an unspecified number of outside contractors from Central New York who already provide computer services to National Grid are also at risk, employees said.

National Grid officials Tuesday declined to discuss their plans, saying no decisions have been made.
