Communications Design and Management (CDM) has signed a preferred supplier contract with the Queensland Government that could be worth millions of dollars.
The project management specialist will offer LAN and WAN infrastructure and services for the state's Department of Education and the Arts (DEA).
Winning preferred provider status for the second time would help to grow its credibility, according to state manager, John Elphinston. The company beat five national and international competitors for the three-year contract, he claimed.
"It shows we put in a competitive and innovative response," he said. "By virtue of being selected again it also shows we did a good job the last time." This response included a tactical strategy for delivering specific products to projects in remote areas, Elphinston said.
Winning the complex deal to service 1300 schools across the state was also a win for CDM's project management approach to integration, Elphinston said.
With preferred supplier status, CDM would seek to expand its operations into other government and non-government organisations in the state, Elphinston said.
