RPS has been named as one of 32 providers appointed to the Australian Department of Defence’s Information and Communications Technology Provider Arrangement (ICTPA).
The panel, which will replace Defence’s Applications Managed Services Partnership Agreement (AMSPA) from September, covers a broad range of digital services and gives Defence access to the industry’s best minds for ICT systems design, development and deployment.
“RPS has worked with Defence for many years to support the acquisition and delivery of world-class assets and capabilities–from physical infrastructure, to information and systems,” explains RPS Executive General Manager for Project Management, Michael Owens.
“Examples include our current work to develop Defence’s Foundation Meteorological and Oceanographic Information System (FMIS)–an enterprise-level platform for collecting, interrogating and sharing weather and oceanographic data by Defence agencies–as well as our work on infrastructure and capability-support projects at dozens of bases across the nation.”
Through the ICTPA panel, RPS will have the opportunity to contribute our team's skills to projects that are equipping Australia for ‘defence in the digital age’.
“We’re looking forward to continuing our close partnership with Defence on projects that ensure Australian forces have the world-class systems, technologies and applications they need to protect our national security,” Mr Owens concludes.
