NEC wins $55m computing deal from NT govt

NEC Australia has won a $55 million contract to provide computing services to 20,000 Northern Territory government end users.

The three-year deal will involve supplying on-site and remote support for all computing devices - including desktops and mobile devices - for all government offices except schools. NEC Australia is already providing computing support to NT schools under a separate contract.

The deal has an option for a two-year extension, and also covers support for file and print services, email, desktop applications and computing assets.

As part of the deal, NEC will team up with partners including NT-based ICT providers Vertical Technology Group, NT Technology, Leading Edge and Red Centre Technology Partners. The local partners will together receive around a third of the contract’s value.

NEC Australia has previously played a role in major NT government ICT projects including a government-wide Windows 7 upgrade in response to Microsoft ending Windows XP support.

“We’ve successfully delivered a number of services and key projects to the NT government over the past decade and look forward to building on these successes in the future,” NEC Australia manager for NT Trevor Oliver said.

“The NT government has the added assurance that all services delivered and all decisions are made locally, leveraging NEC Australia and its partner network when the need arises.”
