News : Optus Picked for NSW Government Telco Panel
Sydney, NSW, Australia, July 19, 2018 -- Optus Business has announced being chosen to provide mobile, fixed data, fixed voice, and internet services for the New South Wales government over the next five years as part of its Telecommunications Purchasing Arrangements.
Optus said gaining a spot on the whole-of-government panel -- which will be reviewed annually "to ensure it keeps pace with the needs and offerings of the quickly evolving telecommunications technology" -- would support the state's digital transformation.
"NSW agencies still have the flexibility of choice as well as the confidence of Optus' enterprise grade solutions," Optus Business managing director John Paitaridis said.

According to the state's chief information and digital officer Greg Wells, partnerships with companies like Optus are "critical to realising the NSW government's digital strategy".
The NSW government had in May kicked off buy.nsw, a single platform for its procurement, with the first opportunity across cloud applications.
Optus had also been chosen to provide managed services for the federal government, last year signing a three-year contract extension with the Australian Department of Agriculture and Water Resources with an emphasis on digital transformation.
Under that contract, Optus will continue delivering mobile, data, and voice services across the mobile and tablet devices used by the federal government department, along with managed telephone, video conferencing, Skype for Business, and a contact centre solution for the department's sites.
Optus Business is focused on delivering communications services for government, in June 2017 announcing that it would be offering its secure private cloud service to multiple Australian government agencies under a deal with Canberra Data Centres (CDC).
Optus Business added cybersecurity prevention, detection, and monitoring capabilities to its managed security services portfolio in September last year.
