DCS South Australia opts for Fujitsu

Fujitsu Australia has signed a multiyear agreement to deliver the iSAFE Integrated Offender Management System to the Department for Correctional Services (DCS) in South Australia.

The project will see Fujitsu lead the overhaul of South Australia’s legacy offender information management system to support DCS in navigating the growing complexities in the sector with the rollout of the new iSAFE system, which is expected to be fully operational in 2023.

The announcement follows an extensive procurement process for the digital transformation program that began after an initial $15 million in funding was announced by the South Australian Government in 2019.

Fujitsu will implement the new system in partnership with specialist software-as-a-service (SaaS) provider Syscon Justice Systems. The company has extensive experience in servicing state corrections agencies both in Australia and abroad.

Fujitsu will design, test and implement the iSAFE solution and provide five years of ongoing support and maintenance, with the option of extension.

The new iSAFE system is designed to ensure sensitive and critical information related to offenders can be accessed across all relevant law enforcement agencies both throughout South Australia and across the country during unfolding operations. Other benefits include the removal of paper-based processes, improved cybersecurity, enhanced case management, and better support for real-time access to information to ensure safer decision-making.
