The Department of Human Services has awarded at least $11 million in IT contracts to Dimension Data, Ethan Group and IBM.
The contracts span a number of projects, including the National Disability Insurance Agency, involving the provision of hardware and software, DHS general manager Hank Jongen told CRN.
Ethan Group was awarded $4.4 million for hardware and associated services for the National Disability Insurance Agency, with the bidding done through the DTA’s ICT hardware and associated services panel.
IBM meanwhile got $3.5 million to provision software licences and support for DHS’ existing IBM API Connect software, and is part of the billion-dollar IBM whole-of-government arrangement.
DHS renewed a previous Dimension Data agreement for Cloudera software subscriptions for the tune of just over $3 million, and was made through the Department of Finance Commercial off the Shelf software, Hardware and Services Panel.
Earlier this month, DHS splashed out $102 million in IT services contracts to DXC, Capgemini and Accenture as part of the department’s Welfare Payment Infrastructure Transformation (WPIT) program.
