Transport for NSW has awarded a $1.13 million contract to SAP-centric integrator NTT Data Business Solutions Australia to work on a component of its massive $150 million ERP consolidation programme.
"The contract does not represent a standalone project. It is the reporting aspect of the SAP ERP programme currently being implemented by Transport for New South Wales," a Transport for NSW spokesperson told CRN.
The spokesperson said the government agency considers reporting a "core deliverable" of the ERP program. The service agreement runs for one year, with the period beginning 2 June this year.
The new contract was granted to NTT Data after a tender process, according to the spokesperson, and that this work is the first time Transport for NSW has engaged NTT Data.
NTT Data bills itself as a SAP specialist, saying on its website that its Solutions Group is "the largest global reseller of SAP license", serves "over 5,000 SAP customers" and "operates 10 dedicated SAP hosting centres globally".
The integrator will work with SAP Business Warehouse software for the Transport for NSW project.
Sister publication iTnews revealed earlier this year that the state government had allocated $150 million to consolidate ERP systems within the "transport cluster". It is not the only major IT spend for Transport for NSW – CRN reported last month that Dimension Data and UXC Connect had won multimillion-dollar data centre reform contracts.
