Fujitsu Australia Limited

Sydney, July 16, 2010

Fujitsu, a leading provider of business, information technology and communications solutions, has entered a new information technology contract with the Department of Defence for the delivery of multiple ICT services for its Distributed Computing Central Services (DCCS) contract – including the Defence Central ICT Service Helpdesk.

The initial term of the contract will be for three years (with extension options up to 20 years) and aligns with the whole of government coordinated procurement policy. The agreement will see Fujitsu providing support to Defence’s 90,000 desktops located around Australia. Importantly, Fujitsu will work closely with Defence to support Defence’s Strategic Reform agenda for ICT.

“Defence selected Fujitsu for the management of the DCCS contract due to our strong Defence relationship and our past successes working together on secure government ICT projects,” states Rod Vawdrey, Chief Executive Officer of Fujitsu Australia and New Zealand. “The Department was impressed with the high levels of professionalism and innovative ICT services that Fujitsu delivers to the large number of Defence staff, and importantly, Fujitsu has committed to working with Defence to deliver strategic reform objectives in support of their ICT reform agenda.”

“This contract augments our already strong presence in Federal Government and recognises the strength Fujitsu brings to delivering ICT services to Defence through tapping our global Defence business. We are excited to be able to continue to deliver first class ICT services to Defence and partner with them to achieve Defence’s goals,” said Rod Vawdrey. “As a global company, we are committing to Defence that we will provide them with our best people. We have brought Ian Gray from our UK Defence business out to Australia as General Manager Defence here in Australia. Ian has been instrumental in shaping our approach to this contract.”

“The benefits to the Department in this contract are that Defence is partnering with a ‘Tier 1’ vendor with significant experience in delivering ICT to Defence and secure government organisations globally, and a vendor that has wholeheartedly committed to provide thought leadership to support Defence’s ICT reform agenda,” said Ian Gray, Fujitsu’s General Manager for Defence.
