SHARE:

in brief TransACT has been appointed to the Australian Government Information Management Office's (AGIMO) whole-of-government telecommunications services panel.

The Telecommunications Commodities, Carriage and Associated Services Panel was first established by AGIMO in January to provide mobile phones, broadband and related services to government agencies. In accompanying documentation (PDF), AGIMO said the aim of the panel is to save the government money on equipment and service purchasing for agencies through standardisation of purchasing.

TransACT now joins fellow telco companies Telstra, Optus and Teledesign on the panel providing mobile services and equipment. TransACT chief Ivan Slavich said that as the company already services over 50 government agencies, it was well-suited for the panel position.

"Our appointment to the panel demonstrates the confidence that the Federal Government has in TransACT to provide a wide range of reliable mobile phone solutions," he said in a statement.
