Fujitsu wins $99m Defence contract
Fujitsu Australia has won a $99 million contract to provide 100,000 defence personnel with a range of desktop and related services.
The three-year contract covers a range of services, including warehousing and asset management, VIP support, project services, formal messaging and audiovisual services.
Under the agreement, Fujitsu will support around 100,000 users across 450 Defence locations around the country.
Fujitsu will partner with a number of Australian SMEs, including Indigenous partners, in the delivery of the services covered by the contract as part of its Australian Industry Capability plan for the project.
The company won the contract through a competitive tender process, with Fujitsu developing a comprehensive support model as part of the tender.
The company was also selected due to its experience providing field service to a number of large Australian retailers and government organisations.
“We are pleased to continue our long-standing relationship with the Department of Defence, which has been in place for over 20 years. This new contract provides an opportunity to leverage our extensive resources to ensure that Defence personnel have the support they need to carry out essential services Australia-wide and beyond,” Fujitsu Australia and New Zealand CEO Mike Foster said.
“We currently have over 600 people dedicated to Defence activities, and contracts such as this help us to provide strong employment opportunities for Australians, which is a key focus for the business. Fujitsu is looking forward to continuing to cement its relationship with the Department of Defence over the next three years and beyond.”
