<p>SYDNEY: May 5: Less than a week after relisting on the ASX, secure voice, video, &amp; data communications company, Allied Technologies Limited today announced it has been awarded new contracts for over $3 million worth of Defence Department infrastructure, facilities auditing and the provision of new on-base communications capability.</p>
<p>In announcing the wins, Managing Director and CEO Mr Ray Doak said that the most significant contract was for the provision of improved communication services for a major Defence Department located within the Russell Office complex in Canberra. Other projects included work at the RAAF base at Amberley in Queensland and RAAF East Sale in South Eastern Victoria, again to improve on-base communications.</p>
<p>"With Defence’s decision to build the new Headquarters Australian Theatre in the Canberra Region, the ACT remains a very important part of Allied’s market," Mr. Doak said.</p>
<p>A confident Mr. Doak predicted that his company would be announcing more Defence Department contracts "before the end of the Financial Year."</p>
<p>"This is a typically busy time for Defence and we have a number of important proposals with the Department which I feel sure will be successful in coming weeks," Mr Doak added.</p>
<p>Allied Technologies was, until it recently merged with secure videoconferencing specialist ServicePoint, a privately owned Australian professional services technology group. Allied specialises in the design, integration, installation and maintenance of communications networks. Based in Canberra, and with regional offices in Sydney, Newcastle, Brisbane and Townsville, the Allied Technologies Group employs a total of some 200 people, many embedded in Defence establishments around the country.</p>
