CrimTrac is the federal government, national information-sharing service for Australia’s police, law enforcement and national security agencies.
The 10-year contract was reached through the Australian Government’s ‘Ready Now’ panel for datacentre facilities, managed by the Australian Government Information Management Office (AGIMO).
According to CrimTrac chief executive officer (CEO), Doug Smith, the agreement will support CrimTrac’s information management initiatives.
“This arrangement satisfies our requirements for secure, reliable, and cost-effective datacentre services to underpin the national policing information capabilities we provide,” Smith said. “This is an important foundation for CrimTrac to continue to provide reliable services that support our police partner agencies.”
TransACT CEO, Ivan Slavich, said that the agreement comes on the back of increased demand for the telco’s datacentre services.
“We’ve seen a huge increase in the take-up of our services over the last 12 months, particularly since announcing a 4.5 MVA power and support infrastructure upgrade,” he said.
This agreement follows a similar $8.6 million deal between TransACT and the Department of Finance and Deregulation, which was signed in August.
