The Western Australian Department of Treasury and Finance has signed a five-year deal with Perth-based IT services group ASG.

It is unclear, however, how the deal relates to a previous ten-year arrangement from 2006, when ASG and sub-contracted partner, CSC, won a $87.8 million, 10-year contract with the WA State Government to provide services relating to its whole of government shared corporate services arrangement.

Since that time — and after a damning auditor report on the project — the State Government has reworked the project and brought it under the Department of Treasury and Finance.

In a statement, ASG said the new deal was worth at least $16 million a year over five years, with scope for an additional $20 million in added project services.

The company noted the contract covered “a comprehensive range of IT services”, as well as additional services including application services, technology renew and extended professional consulting services.

In 2010, ASG has won contracts with the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet ($41 million), Western Power ($35 million), the WA Department of Education ($23 million), Vodafone Hutchison Australia (unknown) and the Department of Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy ($13 million), according to the company’s statement — and it has an “opportunity pipeline” in excess of $626 million.
