Empired 'exclusive' role in NEC consortium delivering services to WA Govt

By

IT services provider Empired says it is playing an exclusive role in a consortium led by NEC to supply GovNext ICT services to the Western Australian Government.

The WA Government has contracted three prime contractors, including NEC Australia, to deliver a whole of government solution for cloud-based ICT infrastructure as a service, with Empired selected as a key subcontractor as part of the NEC consortium.

The term of Empired’s contract is for an initial five years with an option to extend for a further five, with an estimated spend of $15 million over the life of the contract, inclusive of options.

Considerable upside to this value is anticipated based on government uptake and the provision of additional services within the scope of the contract, according to Empired.

Empired managing director Russell Baskerville said it would have an exclusive role within the scope of the contract to provide the core collaboration functions in a cloud environment across the whole of WA Government.

He said the role was exclusive to the NEC consortium and Empired’s role within the consortium was also exclusive and delivered a centralised directory services, centralised Identity service and certificate authority.

The service will be provided on a per user consumption-based pricing model with all users that elect to use the WA Government platform provided the service.

According to the publicly listed Empired (ASX:EPD), the service has the potential to scale beyond 140,000 WA Government users based on agency take-up of the Western Australian GovNext-ICT platform.

“We are delighted to have been selected as a key player in providing services with NEC to the WA State Government under the GovNext-ICT framework. This award is testament to Empired’s capability and investments in cloud based services,” Baskerville said.

“We are excited about this strategic and unique opportunity to deliver cloud services across WA Government. Given our ICT capabilities Empired is well placed to provide broader cloud based solutions as the GovNext-ICT framework evolves.”
