IT company Data#3 has won a $20.6 million contract to supply Cisco equipment and services to Main Roads WA.
The contract win comes one year after the ASX-listed company was appointed as a preferred supplier for the state government’s Common User Agreement panel for device hardware.
Eight companies submitted bids for the Main Roads contract, according to details on tenders.wa.gov.au website.
The contract runs for five years and primarily comprises the supply of network switches, along with network routers and fibre optic patch cord.
Data#3 said this work demonstrated its expertise as a Cisco partner, with the company noting it had won its fifth Cisco Global Partner award in a row this year.
Brisbane-based Data#3 established a WA office in 2007.
Led in WA by state general manager Kingsley McGarrigle, it has about 150 staff in WA and is ranked as the 13th largest ICT company in the state, according to Data & Insights.
Nationally the company has more than 1,200 staff and had operating revenue of $2.2 billion in FY22.
