Fujitsu, a global technology company, today announces it has been awarded a $10M contract by the Western Australia Department for Child Protection (DCP) for the support of its mission-critical PeopleSoft CRM system.

DCP is focused on the protection of at risk children and young people. Through a distributed network of field and social workers across Western Australia, DCP provides care to these children as well as family support services. The Department is also responsible for administering adoptions and criminal records’ screening for people who work with children in the broader community.

As the Department is the only organisation of its size using the PeopleSoft CRM system in WA, a key consideration in awarding this contract was the vendor’s ability to resource large scale, application-specific support in Western Australia. The new five year contract was awarded to Fujitsu as the result of a competitive tender.

In a proven relationship spanning 10 years, Fujitsu has worked with DCP on a number of projects including development and support of the Department’s Microsoft applications.

Cheryl Barnett, Executive Director Metropolitan Services, Department for Child Protection, Western Australia, said: “We deliver some of the most critical statutory services for the community in Western Australia. Our staff require a high level of skill, commitment and resilience. Their effectiveness is underpinned by critical technologies. Working with Fujitsu, we will have the support of their combined local and national skills base to ensure that our core systems continue to support the needs of our distributed and remote workforce.”

Mike Foster, Chief Executive Officer of Fujitsu Australia and New Zealand, said: “We are pleased to be continuing our long-standing relationship with DCP and look forward to committing the depth of our resources to helping the Department in its mandate to improve the welfare of children and young people in Western Australia.”

Robert Lislois, Fujitsu’s Executive General Manager, Western Australia, said “The new contract is very significant for our Western Australia operation. We are delighted to build on our successful long-term relationship with the Department with a contract of this size and duration.”
