Optus Business wins $6m deal with Health

Optus Business has won a three-year, $6 million deal to provide whole-of-department telecommunications services for the Department of Health.

Under the contract, Optus Business will consolidate the Department of Health’s telecommunication products and services under a single service agreement.

The company will provide a range of services, including wide area network, data carriage, mobile and voice services for the department’s 5000 employees. Optus secured the contract through a competitive tender process.

Optus Business Managing Director John Paitaridis said the company has committed to provide services that are cost-effective, robust and scalable to meet the department’s current and future needs.

“We look forward to working with the Department of Health to support their digitalisation and innovation agenda, through the provision of high-performance infrastructure and ICT services,” he said.

The contract builds on Optus’s long-standing partnerships with the ATO and the Department of Home Affairs.

“With our recent addition to the supplier panel for Department of Defence, Optus Business is now involved in supporting three of the four largest government departments in Australia, reinforcing our position as a market-leading telco and ICT provider,” Paitaridis said.
