Unisys to provide IT support to Australian DoD


Unisys Corporation's (UIS) Australian subsidiary has secured a contract modification to continue providing IT support to the Australian Department of Defence (DoD).

Under the $54m deal, the company will provide IT support across 450 sites in Australia, reaching approximately 100,000 end users over a two-year period.

Unisys Asia Pacific public sector lead Lysandra Schmutter said: "We are delighted to continue our work with the Australian DoD.

"Our renewal with the DOD is a testament to the value we collectively have brought to provide a high quality of services and insights to support the critical operations across their bases nationwide.

"Our focus is on the critical role of base operations in defence and ensuring they are executing efficiently and effectively at all times."

As part of the original contract awarded in 2008, the company's standardised DoD IT support processes provided a flexible workforce model based on man-hour capacity.

The project aimed to offer the DoD price predictability, enhanced control, and transparent reporting about how its workforce had been used.

Unisys also provides support for joint service and international military exercises, such as Talisman Sabre, as well as emergency disaster responses, including floods and bushfires.

The company currently supports Australian federal and state government departments and agencies, including the Department of Immigration and Border Protection, the National Audit Office and the Queensland Department of Education and Training.
