The South Australian Government has renewed a managed network services contract with incumbent supplier Dimension Data for $36 million.
The contract was originally signed in 2006 as a major contract in the South Australian Government’s Future ICT Procurement Program initiative.
The contract sees Dimension Data carrying out management, monitoring, break/fix services, administration and support for the South Australian Government’s network and firewall infrastructure.
The current level of service will be maintained but the contract will become “more dynamic” over the next three years.
This will include an additional support role to help the South Australian government use its networking infrastructure to improve services provided to the South Australian public.
Dimension Data’s National Solutions and Services Director David D’Aprano said, “We’ve reduced the Government’s telecommunications costs, while also increasing the network’s capabilities and capacity. The overall result has been significant cost savings for the client and delivery of a high-quality innovative service.”
