Empired has secured a managed services contract with the Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) of Victoria. The contract is for an initial term of four years, plus two one-year options to extend, allowing for the provision of services for up to six years. Across the potential six-year term, the managed services contract has an estimated value of $52m based on an estimated base services revenue of approximately $8.8m per annum.
The EPA’s core activities include protecting human health, setting and reviewing environmental standards, supporting businesses with guidance, compliance and enforcement, managing the works approvals and licensing system, and environmental auditing.
In addition to the base services, Empired will have the opportunity to provide a range of digital project services.
Under the contract, Empired will provide a range of modern digital managed services across EPA’s cloud platforms, networks, and business applications, which are predominately Microsoft-based. Empired will also provide a DevOps approach to underpin ongoing, iterative enhancements to core systems, ensuring systems remain relevant to changing business needs.
Abhijit Gupta, interim CIO, EPA, said, “Over the last couple of years, EPA has made significant investments to uplift its digital capability. This is a key enabler for the Environment Protection Act 2017 that comes into effect on 1 July 2021. I am excited about our partnership with Empired and look forward to leveraging this relationship to deliver high quality technology solutions to the organisation.”
Russell Baskerville, managing director and CEO, Empired, said, “Empired is proud to have been selected by EPA to manage essentially all of its digital assets, which provide the platform for the department to operate and serve as the primary mechanism for its provision of services to businesses and the community at large. This contract will transform Empired’s Australian East Coast operations, bringing credibility in delivering large, complex multi-year services. Empired looks forward to delivering a comprehensive set of high quality services to EPA.”
Empired will commence transition of services during the first quarter of FY22 and expects to be providing all core services by January 22.
