Queensland has signed a whole-of-Government IT Services deal with Microsoft designed to save $13.7 million over three years. The contract is worth $26.5 million and will see Public Sector staff moved from a Government owned and operated mail service to an Office 365 hosted service. The Department of Education, Training and Employment is the only agency exempt from the arrangement as it already has its own deal in place with Microsoft. Minister for Information Technology said in a press release, “This is the first whole-of-government contract in Australia to provide the flexibility to move between computer and cloud-based software, making the Queensland Government leaders in this area.”
