Marriott Corporation is cutting information technology jobs at its headquarters in Bethesda.

Published reports claim formal notices have not yet been sent out to workers. So far, company officials aren't saying how many of their 1,200 IT employees in Bethesda would be affected.

Marriott employees have about 15,000 workers in the area, making it one of the biggest employers in the region.

In 2010, the company announced it would expand its international presence with new operating divisions in Europe, Asia and the Middle East. A spokesperson says the company will be contracting with other companies for IT services to create efficiencies for the company.
