Objective Corporation has today announced that it will continue providing electronic records storage to the Australian Defence organisation after its contract was extended for a further five years.
The original contract, signed in 2000, saw Objective provide an electronic document and records management system to Defence. Objective standardised the organisation's electronic and paper records across its Navy, Army, Air Force, research and administration offices.
The contract extension is worth at least $10 million to Objective over the next five years.
The deployment of new software is also currently being considered by the department, with 25,000 users set for upgrade to Objective 7.5 by the end of the year. Defence is investigating potential upgrades for a further 60,000 users over the next two years.
"Objective has been a trusted partner for over 10 years. This agreement allows us to maximise benefits from our investment by leveraging Objective's public sector expertise and innovative technology," Tony Corcoran, Department of Defence assistant secretary for freedom of information and information management said in a statement.
