Datacom selected for whole of government panel


Australasian IT services firm, Datacom, has been selected by the federal government’s Department of Finance for inclusion on the whole of Government panel for ICT services.

The panel includes the supply of applications development, systems integration, project management and managed services. Datacom will also participate in the areas of commercial off the shelf (COTS) software and hardware, alongside other vendors including Citrix, Commvault, Hewlett Packard, McAfee and Oracle.

“Answering this tender leveraged expertise from across the Datacom Group and required involvement and collaboration with numerous vendors and partners,” Jonathan Ladd, CEO Datacom Group, said.

According to Ladd, Datacom continues to grow its Government IT services business and is “well positioned to achieve exceptional growth in the next 3 years.”

Ladd said the win complemented Datacom’s current Federal Datacentre services panel five year agreement until 2016 to provide datacentre services to federal or state government agencies.  

Datacom also sits on the Australian branch of the Council of Registered Ethical Security Testers (CREST) and works with Standards Australia, leading the latest Outsourcing Standards ISO/PC-259 project.

According to Ladd, the whole-of-government panel makes a step change in processes, improving departmental and agency-based decisions, and Datacom’s contract would assist the Government obtain “value for money in the expenditure of public monies, by reducing purchasing, administration and transaction costs.”
