PLANO, Tex. - Royal Bank of Scotland has signed a 10-year check processing contract with Electronic Data Systems Corp., a leading provider of such services.

Under the agreement, EDS will set up two check processing centers, near London and in Scotland. The centers, which will initially process about 300 million items per year for the Edinburgh-based bank, will form the backbone of a national check processing operation that will enable EDS to provide back-office services to financial institutions throughout the United Kingdom.
