BAE Systems has successfully negotiated a five year extension to the Australian Military Airspace Control Communications System (AMACCS) support contract.
This was achieved by renegotiating the contract to deliver a more cost-effective solution consistent with the Strategic Reform Program (SRP).
Director Land & Integrated Systems, BAE Systems Kim Scott said: "Ensuring we continue to find innovative ways to deliver value to the Commonwealth through the SRP program remains a key objective for us.
“This AMACCS extension is another testimony of how working together we can achieve significant long term cost savings on our projects without compromising the quality of service."
The SRP initiatives are expected to deliver the Commonwealth over 10 per cent savings over the contract period.
These savings were achieved by analysing the project practices and streamlining processes using LEAN principles, and leveraging 10 years of experience gained on AMACCS.
The contract is valued at AUD $11.5 million.
The contract extension also included additional scope valued at AUD $1.6 million which included training and engineering services for through life support at no additional cost.
