Dimension Data, now known as NTT Ltd, has replaced ASG Group as the IT managed services provider of the Australian Transport Safety Bureau.
The $2.5 million contract runs from May 2019 to May 2022, and covers end-user computing services, server management services, access management services and messaging and collaboration services.
A bureau (ATSB) spokesperson told iTnews sibling publication CRN that Dimension Data beat out three other bids, with Canberra-based MSP Sliced Tech also securing a contract to provide secure gateway and network services.
“Dimension Data developed a compelling service offering particularly focused on the requirements of a small agency (100 seats) with a small budget,” the spokesperson said.
“One differentiator was that they included an onsite resource to cater for walk-up enquiries in our Canberra office.”
