ASX-listed Sirius Telecommunications has landed a three-year $20 million contract to provide specialist telecommunications services for the Department of Defence. The deal is a sub-contract agreement under Telstra's existing Head of Contract agreement with the department, secured in April.
Sirius will provide around 100 switchboard operators across the country as well as a centralised help desk and associated management of 20 to 30 staff.
The contract comes with an optional two-year extension, which if adopted would net another $10 million for Sirius.
"This is a big contract for Sirius," said Roger Mason, managing director of Sirius, in a statement to the ASX. "This is both a cornerstone contract for Sirius and a springboard for further growth."
