Confusion surrounds the exact nature of former Ministry of Social Policy IT chief Neil Miranda's employment deal with telco Clear Communications. Miranda says he will start his own company when he leaves MoSP at the end of the month, and this will provide network management services to Clear. But at the same time Clear claims he will be working for them "full time". Miranda will bear the title "executive general manager - networks" at the telco, but Clear chief Peter Kaliaropoulos declines through a spokesman to say whether Miranda will be a permanent member of Clear's staff. Any further details of his employment - or retention as a contractor - are confidential, the spokesman says. Miranda's company, to be known as Nemisys, will provide consultancy and implementation services in IT infrastructure, Miranda says. Apart from the Clear deal, the one-man company has a management services contract with MSP. "Everything I am doing in the near future, from July 2, I will be doing through Nemisys," Miranda told Computerworld last Wednesday. Later that day, Clear sent out a press release giving him the "EGM networks" title. Miranda could not be reached for further comment before press time.
