Fujitsu inks three-year Defence contract to deliver ICT services Featured


Japanese ICT giant Fujitsu has signed a three-year contract with the Australian Department of Defence to uplift and modernise Defence’s existing and planned future ICT environments.

Fujitsu is undertaking the work in partnership with industry partners KBR and Leidos and will provide services including service desk functions, end-user and workstation support, VoIP and email communications, collaboration tools, network infrastructure, and network services management across all Defence operations.

Defence’s deployed ICT network environments provide essential command, control, situational awareness, and allied/partner interoperability services for ADF personnel serving on deployed operations and exercises, including for troops in the field, ships at sea, and joint headquarters and support bases deployed domestically, regionally and across the globe.

Key deliverables of the contract with Fujitsu include the continuous sustainment of in-service deployed ICT environments that are an essential part of Defence’s operational capability; centrally-governed security and accreditation and enterprise governance that will align deployed ICT with Defence’s wider networks - enhancing the capacity and skillsets of Defence’s ICT workforce and building strategic partnerships that encourage performance and prioritises continuous improvement.

The Fujitsu contract with Defence is the result of a competitive tender.

Graeme Beardsell, Chief Executive Officer, Fujitsu Australia and New Zealand, said, “Fujitsu is pleased to continue its longstanding relationship with the Department of Defence and to be working collaboratively with Defence’s industry partners KBR and Leidos.

“Where together we will deliver a comprehensive solution that will provide exceptional support to critical Defence operations. Through our strategic partnership with Defence, we look forward to provisioning surge capacity and enhancing skills with our ADF colleagues.

“Fujitsu’s approach is focussed on supporting Defence in its mission to defend Australia and its national interests through the delivery of technology solutions and increased ICT capability”.

Fujitsu says its ongoing relationship with the Department of Defence is providing employment opportunities for Australians, with more than 1,400 cleared Fujitsu staff dedicated to delivering the technology and skills needed to support Australia’s defence capabilities.
