The CEO and Managing Director of Infosys Technologies S. Gopalakrishnan expressed “concern” over the moves by Ohio to ban offshoring of IT services outside the U.S.

However, Mr. Gopalakrishnan, in a statement, said Infosys “should not be affected,” because its public services initiative in the U.S. “is focussed on creating a domestic delivery centre in the U.S. hence this should not be affected.” Ohio had issued an order in August banning the outsourcing of government IT and back-office projects to offshore locations in India and other countries.

An executive order prohibited “the expenditure of public funds for services provided offshore.”
