The Register's article shows that, during the oursourcing, recruitment requests in India asked for less than 1/3 of the typical experience of the team which was got rid of. This directly contradicts the CEO of the Royal Bank of Scotland who gave a statement that "I have no evidence of that. The IT centre — our main centre, we’re standing outside here in Edinburgh, [is] nothing to do with overseas". If the Register's article is true it would suggest remarkable ignorance on the part of the CEO who should have been fully informed about a disaster of this level within hours of it's occurrence and certainly a week later.
