Posted on 12-Mar-2016 10:33. | Tags Filed under: News.



Unisys Corporation (NYSE: UIS) today announced that its Australian subsidiary has signed a two-year contract extension, estimated to be worth approximately AUD$74 million (US$54 million), with the Australian Department of Defence to provide IT support for 100,000 end users at approximately 450 Defence locations across Australia.

Under the contract, which runs until October 2018, Unisys will continue to provide IT support to all sections within the Australian Department of Defence. Unisys also provides support for joint service and international military exercises such as Talisman Sabre, as well as emergency disaster responses including floods and bushfires.

Since taking on the contract in 2008, Unisys has standardized Defence Department IT support processes nationally, and provides a flexible workforce model based on man-hour capacity and prioritized services. The model offers the Department price predictability, control over where workforce efforts are focused, and transparent reporting about how the workforce has been used.

“We are delighted to continue our work with the Australian Department of Defence,” said Lysandra Schmutter, Public Sector Lead, Unisys Asia Pacific. “Our renewal with the Department of Defence is a testament to the value we collectively have brought to provide a high quality of services and insights to support the critical operations across their bases nationwide. Our focus is on the critical role of base operations in defense and ensuring they are executing efficiently and effectively at all times.

Unisys has a strong history and experience working with public sector organizations. More than 300 government agencies worldwide use Unisys solutions. In Australia, Unisys supports federal and state government departments and agencies including the Australian Department of Immigration and Border Protection, Australian National Audit Office and the Queensland Department of Education and Training.
