in brief CSC announced today that it had won a four-year contract with the Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) to provide mainframe and network communications services.

CSC had already been managing the electoral commission's mainframe, along with that of the Department of Immigration and Citizenship under an outsourcing agreement first signed in 1997. It has been extended a number of times.

The new contract, which will run through to 2013, is worth $8 million to the outsourcer. Along with providing the mainframe and networking services, CSC will also implement a disaster recovery system.

"This new contract further demonstrates AEC's confidence in CSC to provide IT services to upkeep one of Australia's most business critical systems at the same time delivering value for money with reliable, safe and mature service options," Australian Electoral Commission CIO Michael Cuddihy said in a statement.
