The $99 million contract will see Fujitsu provide desktop services, warehousing and asset management, VIP support, project services, formal messaging, and audio visual services.
Fiujitsu was awarded the contract after a competitive tender process and its ability to provide a “strong customer focus and to deliver capability and innovation to the Department of Defence”.
“Fujitsu leveraged its national field services capability to develop a comprehensive support model and demonstrated its ability to support such a widespread organisation through strong business references. Fujitsu delivers field services to some of Australia’s largest retailers and government organisations, giving it the experience and knowledge to support the Department of Defence with high-quality services,” the company said in a statement.
The company says it has a strong understanding of the Department of Defence’s environment based on many years of experience with the department, which will help ensure continuity of services.
Fujitsu Australia and New Zealand chief executive Mike Foster said, “We are pleased to continue our long-standing relationship with the Department of Defence, which has been in place for over 20 years. This new contract provides an opportunity to leverage our extensive resources to ensure that Defence personnel have the support they need to carry out essential services Australia-wide and beyond.
“We currently have over 600 people dedicated to Defence activities and contracts such as this help us to provide strong employment opportunities for Australians, which is a key focus for the business. Fujitsu is looking forward to continuing to cement its relationship with the Department of Defence over the next three years and beyond.”
