Dialog has been awarded a $3.7 million contract with the Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) for application development of a self-service platform.
The two-year contract was awarded on 16 August following an open tender process.
Specifically, Dialog will assist the AEC with a self-service platform intended to facilitate a range of political party and candidate interactions with the AEC across the electoral cycle, according to a department spokesperson.
This is a new contract and was awarded under the Department of Infrastructure, Regional Development and Cities IT Services Panel, which counts on 301 suppliers.
Dialog Information Technology was established in 1979 and is part of the Dialog Group.
Dialog Group owns other businesses such as the Sydney-based Access HQ, a quality assurance and software testing company; Catapult BI, a business insight and data management consultancy; multi-media company Icemedia; Moonwalk, a data management company and Lynx IT, an IT services provider and Microsoft partner.
In January, Dialog IT won a three-year deal worth just over $2.5 million for the provision of G Suite licences for the NSW Department of Industry.
The contract, which spans from the end of 2017 to December 2020, sees Dialog IT supply the NSW Department of Industry’s Corporate Service Partners organisation with at least 10,000 G Suite Business and Data Loss Prevention (DLP) for Drive and Gmail software licences until the end of 2020.
The IT services provider has recently joined the Department of Defence information communication and technology provider panel arrangement along with names such as ASG Group, Araza, DXC Technology and DWS.
As previously reported by ARN, the ICTPA is a new panel arrangement and covers three service towers: systems integration; application services; and IT services.
The new panel arrangement is aimed at replacing the department’s outgoing Applications Managed Services Partnership Arrangement (AMSPA) scheme, worth $340 million over its five-year life-span.
