Unisys has won a $52 million contract extension to provide IT support for the Australian Department of Defence.
The two-year contract extension will see the company provide support for 100,000 end users at 460 defence locations across Australia.
Under the contract, Unisys will continue to provide IT support services including network security and infrastructure support, as well as server and desktop support, to all sections within the Australian Department of Defence including the Australian Defence Force - comprised of the Royal Australian Navy, Australian Army and Royal Australian Air Force. Unisys also provides support for joint service and international military exercises, and has supported emergency disaster responses such as the recent bushfires in the Blue Mountains and Queensland floods. Since taking on the contract in 2008, Unisys has standardised IT support processes nationally. Unisys vice president and general manager, global managed services Asia Pacific, Scott Whyman, said he was delighted to continue the relationship with Australian Department of Defence.
“Unisys has a highly skilled and trusted field service workforce with the national reach to meet Defence’s geographic IT support requirements across metropolitan, regional and remote locations,” he said.
