And, also included is Macquarie Telecom’s “business-class “NBN service and support from ”industry-leading, on-shore customer service specialists”.
“The NSW Government at all levels are transforming their operations so they can deliver better digital experiences to employees and NSW citizens,” said Angela Anderson, Head of Business Development, NSW Government.
Macquarie was appointed by the NSW Government following a comprehensive intake process focused on improving value for money through increasing competition among approved providers.
Macquarie says this agreement represents the extension of its government expertise, having worked with federal agencies for more than 18 years through the Macquarie Government business.
"Much like in the corporate world, we have witnessed a considerable shift in the requirements of state government departments over the last two years, which now demand packaged solutions to address various operational requirements,” said Aidan Tudehope, managing director at Macquarie Government.
“Macquarie's inclusion in the NSW Government's telecoms supplier panel is another example of our ability to deliver a broad ICT solutions set, combining best of breed services spanning the full Macquarie portfolio, including cloud computing and cyber security services."
