Queensland Health has awarded IT services company UXC the role of prime systems integrator to supply telecommunications products and services to the department for at least the next three years.
UXC will supply telecommunications infrastructure products, services, and support to Queensland Health for three years, with two potential extensions of one year each.
The company will provide data and voice products, wireless local area networks, video conferencing, and paging and messaging systems.
UXC managing director Cris Nicolli said that the deal follows 10 years of UXC working with Queensland Health.
"Our experience in providing quality solutions and services, the depth of experience in the UXC Queensland offices, and the strong alignment with major international infrastructure partners are key differentiators in the UXC approach," he said in a statement.
The contract comes as an inquiry began last week into the bungling of the implementation of the Queensland Health payroll system in 2010 that resulted in staff being overpaid, underpaid, or not paid at all. The inquiry is being headed up by former Court of Appeal Judge Richard Chesterman, QC.
