The Department of Defence approved Information Communications Technology Partner Arrangement membership for Insitec.
Insitec announced on Tuesday that it has received notification from the Department of Defence regarding an updated Information Communications Technology Partner Arrangement (ICTPA) panel membership.
The ICTPA membership was held by Exeter, before the sale of the membership to Insitec during 2020. As such, the related contracts will now be owned my Insitec.
Some 60 former Exeter staff are now working at Insitec.
Andrew McNeill, chairman of Insitec, welcomed the acquisition.
“This acquisition roughly doubles our group employee base and substantially expands the horizon for our engagement with Defence’s Chief Information Officer Group (CIOG). The Insitec board and executive are very excited at the prospects for future leveraging of this panel membership as a platform to expand our service offerings to Defence and the wider Australian government,” McNeill said.
Michael Branch, managing director of Insitec, noted that there are huge benefits to the membership.
“The expansion of Insitec ICT team capabilities via the addition of the DMV staff base will enable us to provide an even wider set of services across CIOG. Insitec is building a globally competitive sovereign capability for the Australian Defence Force and its supporting enabling groups via a focus on high-level integration skills, locally-provided technical support and innovative cyber services,” Branch said.
“The DMV ICTPA acquisition comprises one further tranche of a wider growth initiative across the Insitec Group commenced over the first half of 2020, with the aim of developing our business capabilities to better focus on evolving Australian Defence Force future military capability requirements, as canvassed in the 2020 Force Structure Plan. It also fully complements our recent acquisition of Horizon Defence Systems Pty Ltd and the successful merging of that company’s capabilities into our Military, Intelligence and Space Systems (MIS) business.”
