Infrastructure Dept signs ASG for ICT services again


blog If you were working in Federal Government ICT circles back in 2008, you may recall that the then-Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Local Government signed a $30 million deal (PDF) with local IT services group ASP for a comprehensive range of services ranging from desktop support to servers, laptops, printers and more. Well, news arrived this week that the Department is so happy with ASG — after seven years — that it has re-signed the contract. ASG’s statement:

“ASG continues to consolidate their Federal Government footprint, signing a new contract with the Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development for up to $23.8 million. The five year deal, with further options for up to three years, will see ASG delivering Infrastructure Services, Desktop Services and end-to-end Service Management across the Department’s ICT environment.

ASG have been providing Managed Services to the Department for over 7 years. “ASG’s track record delivering high-quality Managed Services, together with our innovative new world solutions continues to demonstrate and deliver real benefits and value for money for our Federal Government customers,” said Geoff Lewis, ASG CEO.

“This contract also solidifies our position as a premier provider of Desktop and Infrastructure Services for the Federal Government,” said Mr Lewis.

This re-sign of an existing client is a further example of the unique strength of ASG’s New World managed service business model, contributing to ASG’s locked-in, annuity revenue base for a further 5+ years.”
