Australian consulting and technology firm Oakton has won a four-year contract to revamp and manage the Attorney-General's Department's Document Verification Service (DVS).

The DVS is a service provided by the department to other government agencies that enables real-time verification of proof-of-identity documents. A commercial version of the service is available for the private sector.

The contract covers the rebuilding, hosting and management of the service, including the supply of hardware and software components.

“Oakton is proud to be able to support AGD in achieving its goals for the new DVS from design through to development, to an ongoing integrated managed service,” Oakton CEO Neil Wilson commented.

“This includes the provision of full infrastructure services as part of the Oakton Services Integration model.”

Oakton was established in Melbourne in 1988. Today, the company has around 1100 employees at offices in Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra, Brisbane and Perth, as well as Hyderabad, India.
