NEC has won a three-year managed services contract with the Department of Parliamentary Services (DPS), which runs the Australian federal parliament, after acquiring the previous DPS IT services provider.

NEC inherited the previous managed services contract with DPS after nabbing CSG's Technology Solutions division for AU$227 million in May 2012. The initial contract had been in place since 2003, and the new contract was secured through the NEC brand in an open tender process.

The agreement kicked off in April, and covers over 260 servers, 1,300 desktops, 300 notebooks, and 700 printers. That encompasses IT services and support for 260 electorate offices of each senator and member of parliament across Australia.

Previously a communications integrator, NEC had ambitions to become a fully fledged IT service provider after buying CSG's Technology Services division.

"The contract renewal demonstrates the ongoing success of NEC Australia's transformation and position as a leading Australian ICT services firm, offering customers deep expertise in ICT consulting, application development, business process solution management, and desktop and infrastructure management," NEC said in a statement.
