The deal, which will run for 10 years, met the requirements set by the national policing information sharing agency for secure, reliable, and cost-effective datacentre services, according to CrimTrac CEO Doug Smith.

"This is an important foundation for CrimTrac to continue to provide reliable services that support our police partner agencies," he said in a statement.

This deal follows TransACT's AU$8.6 million datacentre arrangement with the Department of Finance and Deregulation, which was secured in August through the AGIMO panel for datacentre facilities.

"We're really pleased to establish another long-term relationship with a government agency, and will provide CrimTrac with the outstanding customer service the iiNet Group is known for," TransACT CEO Ivan Slavich said in a statement.

iiNet bought TransACT late last year.
