The Australian arm of US telecoms giant Verizon has been included on Australia’s Telecommunications Marketplace Panel by the Digital Transformation Agency’s (DTA), making it the only global technology service provider selected.

Part of the Australian Government’s Digital Transformation Strategy, the Telecommunications Marketplace is aimed at simplifying the procurement process for both government buyers and digital sellers, and as part of the application process, Verizon Australia was assessed on a number of criteria including corporate stability, digital expertise and value for money.

Robert Le Busque, regional vice president of Verizon Asia-Pacific said, “It is no accident that the Australian Government ranks second in the world for its effectiveness of delivering digital government services to its many stakeholders.”

“Crucial to their success has been the ability to partner with the right service providers to deliver transformative digital services. The massive shift to working from home in response to COVID-19 is accelerating this change at both the network and the security layer. We’re very proud to continue to be on this journey with them.”

Le Busque said Verizon’s inclusion on the DTA panel marks yet another milestone for the business in Australia.

Le Basque notes that in December, Verizon inked an agreement with NBN Co, making it one of the first global communications technology providers to provide NBN Co. sourced business connectivity services to Australian enterprise and government customers, with Verizon offering a range of managed security and network services overlaid on NBN-access technology through the new marketplace.

“Verizon has provided managed network and security services to enterprise and government customers in Australia for over 20 years including 75-plus Commonwealth and State Government agencies in Australia,” Verizon said in its statement released on Wednesday.

“In addition, Verizon is a leading provider of secure Internet gateway and PKI services to the Australian Federal Government. In 2017, the company opened its state-of-the-art Asia-Pacific Advanced Security Operations Center in Canberra, staffed by Australian Government Security Vetting Agency-cleared security specialists,” Verizon concluded.
