Specialist testing software company Revolution IT has been awarded a $9 million contract with the Department of Home Affairs to provide advisory services.
A spokesperson for the department told ARN that Revolution IT will connect the department with "top quality vendors" to deliver a range of IT needs.
Revolution IT was established in 2004 and employs over 300 staff across Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, Canberra and Singapore.
The technology provider was responsible for the performance testing of the Census 2016 website that included simulating expected load and allowing for sufficient peak head room as specified by the Australian Bureau of Statistics.
In addition, Revolution IT was the incumbent provider but the previous contract expired and there were no further extension options.
The tender, which ran through the ICT Services Panel, received two responses. Modis Consulting also submitted a bid in response to the request for quotation and was also selected to provide the services.
Both contract wins were published on 3 August and are run from 1 July 2018 to 30 June 2019. Each separate contract is worth $9 million.
"Revolution IT has demonstrated capacity to provide high quality and skilled testing resources, flexibility, responsiveness and competitive rates," the spokesperson added.
The Department of Human Services ICT Services Panel was established in September 2014 and runs until 21 August 2019, with the panel currently counting on 83 suppliers servicing at least 42 agencies.
In April, Ajilon Australia announced it was rebranding to Modis in a move aimed at supporting the company's ambition to establish itself as a leading player in the global technology professional staffing and solutions space.
Modis is part of the Adecco Group, a human resources solutions provider. The company, which announced the impending name change late last year, has offices in Adelaide, Brisbane, Canberra, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney.
Regardless of the new brand, the company will continue offering the same services as before, including professional staffing and consulting, project services, managed services, customised solutions and full IT outsourcing projects.
