Fuji Xerox Australia has inked a multimillion dollar deal with the Department of Human Services, which will see the OEM providing multi-purpose office printers with scan and photocopy capabilities.
As ARN reports, the company has signed a $32.7 million (€28 million) contract with the Department of Human Services “to upgrade multi-purpose office printers, supplies and accessories”, which is “part of a previous contract that was awarded to Fuji Xerox Australia under the Major Office Machines (MOM) panel.”
The contract will conclude in May 2021.
Hank Jongen, General Manager of the Department of Human Services, explained that Fuji Xerox Australia was selected for the deal “as their proposal presented the best value for money option.”
The Australian government’s MOM procurement panel was set up in 2016, with the Minister for Finance Mathias Cormann saying that it had been appointed “for the next four years, with an optional two-year extension”.
At the beginning of this year, the local division of Fuji Xerox Printers became incorporated into Fuji Xerox Australia “with the combined business focusing on direct business”. Four of the more than 50 Fuji Xerox Printer staff were offered full-time employment following the integration.
