The Federal Department of Immigration and Multicultural Affairs (DIMA) and the Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) have extended their contracts with Computer Sciences Corporation.
The new agreements have an estimated total value of $112 million if all options are exercised.
Under the DIMA extension, which is for two years with an option for an additional two years, CSC will continue to provide mainframe and mid-range services in support of the Department’s core Border Critical Infrastructure (BCI), as well as related project work. The BCI uses information and management systems designed to protect Australia’s borders and national security.
Under the AEC extension, which is for one year with an option for another year, CSC will continue providing mainframe services.
Mike Shove, managing director of CSC’s Australian operations said it was delighted to extend its long-term relationships with these agencies.
CSC’s original contracts with DIMA and the AEC were part of the Federal Government's Cluster 3 outsourcing contract, which was signed in 1998.
In 2002, under the terms of that contract, DIMA exercised its option to extend for four years.
The latest extension specifically for Border Critical Infrastructure Services falls within the original Cluster 3 tender.
