CSC has scored another $4.3 million windfall with Western Australia’s Department of Corrective Services (DCS).
The integrator landed a five-year DCS deal in September last year to provide help desk, network security and infrastructure services to support the department’s courts and prison applications. Expenditure in the first year was estimated at $10.5m. The contract crossed over to cover computer links with the WA Police and the Department of Transport.
Under the latest three-year, $4.3m IT services agreement, CSC will offer application support for the DCS’s criminal offenders in custody records database, the Total Offender Management Solution (TOMS). The contract has two one-year extension options.
Support will encompass software enhancements for new operating systems.
“There is possibly some work to convert TOMS to a later version of an applications platform,” CSC vice-president of chemical, energy and natural resources, Mike Horton, said.
In a statement, the company said DCS will work with a number of service providers, including CSC, to provide an integrated offender management regime across the department. Horton said there would be certain components of the contract which would involve collaborating with the other service providers on-board.
“Our close engagement with DCS has given us a clear understanding of its business needs and future IT requirements,” CSC president, Gavin Larkings, added in the statement.
