Perth, WA (PRWEB) August 1, 2009
Information and Communications Technology (ICT) service provider ZettaServe has been awarded a five (5) year contract by the National Offshore Petroleum Safety Authority (NOPSA) to provide complete end-to-end managed ICT infrastructure services. This is ZettaServe's largest Federal Government contract to date and encompasses complete end-to-end managed ICT infrastructure, hosting and communications services for NOPSA's East and West Coast offices until 2014.
NOPSA's selection of ZettaServe was influenced by demonstration of the following elements:
- The management's capability to meet NOPSA's requirements, supported by established processes and methodologies;
- The technical capability to deliver the required services, using the right level of resources and expertise;
- Proven ability to effectively transition from the current arrangement;
- Proven track record in the provision of similar services, with outstanding references from existing clients.
John Townsend, NOPSA's Chief Information Officer said: "ZettaServe demonstrated not only the managerial and technical capabilities required, but understanding of how to deal with a small government organisation like NOPSA."
Dr Nathan Harman, Managing Director of ZettaServe said: "We are delighted that NOPSA has chosen us to deliver these services. To win our largest Federal government contract at a time where our Managed ICT Services is growing from strength-to-strength is advantageous for NOPSA and ZettaServe. As an emerging national ICT service provider, this is definitely a significant and strategic triumph for our team."
"ZettaServe welcomes the new collaborative working relationship with NOPSA, as the opportunities, advantages and benefits presented to both parties are immense. We believe that NOPSA is one of many more Federal Government client contracts to come our way", said Mr. Mark Vassallo, Manager of WA ICT Services.
In addition to this new five-year Federal Government contract, ZettaServe continues to deliver managed ICT services to other Government agencies such as the Department of Housing, Department of Treasury and Finance (DTF), Department of Planning and Infrastructure (DPI), Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC), and Department of Mines and Petroleum (DMP). Top private sector organizations including Woodside Energy, BHP Billiton, Rio Tinto, Deloitte, National Bank of Australian (NAB), Orica, Goodman Fielder, CBH, CSC, and Unisys are also active clients of ZettaServe.
