CSG axes 100 in Canberra

ASX-listed services provider insists the future is rosy despite slashing staff

ASX-listed IT services company, CSG (ASX: CSV), will lose 100 staff from its Canberra operations following the loss of several Government tenders.

CSG group general manager, Brian Lee, said the losses had been anticipated when CSG purchased a government-oriented Commander business last year. There will be no further cuts.

“The tenders that were lost to other providers had been bided for by Commander while under receivership,” he said. “We had hoped that those staff would migrate to the new providers with the contracts, but it didn’t occur.”

Lee said CSG was in a growth period, having recently taken on an additional 100 staff in its SA operations.

“As it is we’re keeping on more staff than needed because we feel they are good people and will help us grow the business. We see our main area of growth being in managed services, but are hoping to grow both the enterprise and print services businesses in Canberra,” he said.

Some of the Commander tenders that were lost include the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA), and the Department of Agriculture.
