“We’re reinvesting a lot of money — hundreds of millions of dollars, we’re blowing back into our people, in terms of skills, hiring, ” Lawrie added.

CSC plans to reduce between $450 million and $500 million in fiscal 2015 costs by streamlining general and administrative spending and rebalancing human resources, the Business Journal reports.
