Unisys has renewed a multimillion dollar contract with one of its longest-standing and most important Government clients.
The Queensland Department of Education and Training has selected Unisys to provide IT outsourcing services to all Technical and Further Education (TAFE) institutes across the state. Under the arrangement, Unisys will support around 330 servers and 19,000 desktops, while providing around 75,000 support calls per year.
The contract value over the three-year term is $41 million, with two single-year extension options.
Unisys vice-president, global outsourcing and infrastructure services, Asia-Pacific, Tony Henshaw, said the 12-year partnership between the two, coupled with the size and scope of the contract, meant the Department of Education and Training was one of Unisys’ top 10 customers.
“It was a competitive tender, but the Department did get to negotiating with us pretty quickly, which is a sign that they have been happy with the service we have been providing,” Henshaw said.
