DB Results to boost ACT Revenue Office IT infrastructure

18 May 2016

A $30 million investment will boost tax and concession services after Australian company DB Results won the contract to work with ACT Revenue Office.

DB Results, which will base itself around Oracle’s Public Sector Revenue Management platform, will be constructed with services from INTRASOFT International, a company that deals with tax project delivery.

DB Results hopes to invest significant growth in Canberra’s future, including expansion of services and staff in the region.

“We are very pleased with this outcome and look forward to supporting the ACT Revenue Office for many years to come. DB Results has been investing in Canberra for over four years and the Revenue Office is our third major client in the Territory,” Andrew Deans, DBResults CEO says.

The ACT Revenue Office is responsible for receiving $1.2 billion in taxes from businesses to distribute back to most public utilities and amenities.

Rebates worth $50 million are distributed to citizens through pension, low income and disability earners for various services including water and rates.

“After a rigorous selection process we engaged DB Results because we believe that their experience, knowledge of Oracle products and history of successful implementations is the best fit for our business,” Kim Salisbury, Commissioner for ACT Revenue, says.

DB Results expects to take three years to construct and implement the platform.
