Optus Business has expanded its managed services contract with the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) until June 2018.
Optus will continue to supply all voice and data communications – mobile and fixed, contact centre and video conferencing on behalf of the ATO.
Optus Business managing director, John Paitaridis, said the ATO was one of its largest customers and the extended contract proved its ability to deliver managed ICT services to the scale, reliability and quality that the ATO required.
“We are delivering a large scale, enterprise-wide, multi-vendor environment tightly integrated to ATO’s core systems,” Paitaridis said. “We also provide the ATO with a range of project services from office relocation's to complex application development projects to support the ATO’s digital innovation programs.”
The contract supports voice and data services connecting more than 20,000 ATO users across 35 locations throughout the country on the Optus network.
Optus Business delivers ICT services to a number of Federal Government agencies including the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry.
Last month, it became one of the first major telco and ICT providers to join the Federal Government’s Cloud Services Provider panel.
