IT services provider DWS has won an $8.2 million-dollar contract to manage the Department of Defence’s engineering applications.
Under the terms of the three-year contract, DWS will be tasked with management and sustainment of existing the agency’s applications, known as Ancillary Engineering Applications.
According to Defence, there are no hardware or licenses associated with the contract and the deal does not form part of a bigger project. The contract will end on 31 August 2022.
The agency was unable to comment further on the project.
The win follows a strong revenue spike for the publicly listed DWS, having posted a $20-million increase in its last half year results.
However, net profit after tax fell 34 per cent to $6.7 million in the first half of the 2019 financial year, or $3.4 million down compared to the previous corresponding period, attributed to increased investment in licensing and robotic process automation (RPA).
Last year, the provider acquired Canberra-based strategic management and IT consulting business Projects Assured in a total deal worth $43 million.
