Fujitsu scores $6m DFAT deal for SATIN

IT services provider to provide desktop support for the largest Australian government international network, the Secure Australian Telecommunications and Information Network (SATIN)

Fujitsu has nabbed a three-year $6 million contract with the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) to assist the agency's Global Support Centre service desk.

After a tender process, Fujitsu was selected as the winning bidder in July and will provide desktop support for the largest Australian government international network, the Secure Australian Telecommunications and Information Network (SATIN), which connects 6000 users at 150 locations around the world, along with other ICT services.

“Fujitsu is honoured to work with one of Australia’s leading Government organisations in this project and looks forward to supporting DFAT in advancing applications development, systems design and integration, and secure hosting and consultancy,” Fujitsu Australia Federal Government Group Executive Director Michael Blake, said in a statement.

In November, Fujitsu announced it will open up a new tier 3 data centre in Perth as part of efforts to cement its place in the top three service providers in the country while also scrapping the Kaz and Supply Chain Consulting brands after acquiring both of the companies earlier this year.
