Next gen technology provider CSC has inked a three year contract with Transport for NSW worth $100 million.
The partnership will see CSC provide network managed services across the department's 1200 sites including administration offices, motor registries, roadside depots and railway stations.
The agreement includes the option of two one-year extensions.
The multi-year contract will see CSC managing seven separate legacy networks in addition to various next-generation technologies being deployed in a forthcoming network refresh. CSC will maintain all operationally critical network equipment including switch routers, wireless networks, and firewalls for Transport for NSW and its agencies.
“Transport for NSW had embarked on a rigorous procurement process before extending its relationship with CSC,” explains Seelan Nayagam, managing director, CSC Australia - New Zealand.
“Our deep knowledge of the transport industry and ability to meet Transport's core requirements around enhanced services and delivery quality were key factors in the final selection of CSC to support these vitally important operations,” he says.
The agreement also calls for CSC to manage all third-parties that provide service and carriage to Transport for NSW.
Over the next six months, CSC will facilitate this transition to achieve economies of scale and cost savings with one organisation overseeing and managing all services.
Nayagam says this factor will be critical for the provision of connectivity with Transport for NSW end-users needing to access any business application from anywhere, at any time.
“Transport for NSW has been a long standing client of UXC's since 1992. With CSC's recent acquisition of UXC, we are looking forward to helping Transport for NSW realise even further efficiencies with our combined capabilities,” he adds.
