ASG’s six-year IT managed services contract with the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet (PM&C) has the distinction of having more contract amendments posted in AusTender than any other contract monitored by Intermedium.
The contract, which was worth $14.3 million at its inception is now worth over $50 million, according to the 65 increases in its value that have been posted to AusTender to date.
ASG provides service desk, desktop, server and network, plus project services for PM&C and its portfolio agencies. Its contract with PM&C was originally signed as a three-year $14.3 million contract in March 2010.
The contract value was first increased to $18.9 million in 2011 following Machinery of Government changes and an annual price review. By 2013, its value had risen to $27.4 million via a number of relatively incremental increases.
The execution of a three-year extension option in 2013 saw an additional $20 million added to the contract, bringing its value to $47.5 million.
In the year since, 41 amendments have been made to the contract value, with the most recent increase of $50,324 in October 2014 bringing its total value to just over $50 million.
While the ASG contract is currently PM&C’s largest ICT-related agreement, other ongoing contracts signed by the Department include:
