Datacom clinches $242 million health contract
Delivers infrastructure and support services to federal Department of Health.
In another government win for Datacom, the company has clinched a $242 million contract to supply infrastructure and support services to the federal Department of health.
The agreement is a departure from traditional IT services outsourcing, says Datacom. This offers an “an outcomes-based fully managed service, with consumption-based pricing.” The focus is on service delivery.
The Department of Health incorporates 18 portfolio agencies and four statutory office holders. As-a-service models leverage user-pay licensing and delivery arrangements. These enable users to tap into subscription-based services, and on-demand. Increasingly, organisations are using hosted services, as and when needed.
Jonathan Ladd, Datacom Group CEO said the latest contract follows on from “a fiercely competitive process.” This was complemented by an extensive follow-up ensuring a new support model meets the needs of the Department of Health.
This Department of Health-Datacom partnership model leverages the as-a-service model. Datacom has a portfolio of federal government work, including new contracts spanning Australian Customs, Border Protection Service and CrimTrac.
The company also has established engagements with the Department of the Environment, Australian Taxation Office, Australian Competition and Consumer Commission, the NHMRC and Airservices Australia.
