With the appointment, Macquarie says it will deliver purpose-built cloud and cyber security solutions to NSW Government agencies.
According to the firm, growing cloud demand from government agencies provides Macquarie Government with great confidence for future growth across both federal and state government.
“Accordingly, there is further investment in expansion being made to meet this demand, with an increase in OPEX of around $3 million and CAPEX by $1.6 million in this financial year, in addition to the standard business as usual investments in this area,” Angela Anderson, head of Business Development – State Government at Macquarie, said.
“The opportunity to bring to NSW Government agencies the insights and experience from our fourteen years in Canberra, is an exciting prospect.”
Derek Paterson, director, NSW GovDC & marketplace services, Department of Finance Services and Innovation, said: “The GovDC Marketplace is focused on assisting government agencies to deliver fast, cost effective and reliable solutions to NSW citizens through as-a-service cloud capability solutions. Our pre-qualified suppliers are a vital part of that, with agencies able to choose the right solution for them based on the hybrid value proposition of each supplier.”
“We are proud of the Tier 1 Federal Agencies in Canberra – including the Australian Taxation Office and the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade – choosing to work with us today to develop innovative and flexible cloud solutions,” Aidan Tudehope, managing director of Macquarie Government, said.
“The combination of our history as an Australian-founded, owned and operated business, the famous Macquarie customer services model — built on our investment in onshore, in house staff — and our cyber security credentials as the provider of secure Internet gateway services for dozens of agencies, makes for a unique offering.”
