NATIONAL IT consultancy Ajilon has been awarded a contract worth up to $32.9 million to provide services to the WA Department of the Attorney-General. The company will deliver IT applications and support to the department over a three-year period initially, with two extension options of one year each. Department of the Attorney-General director general, Cheryl Gwilliam, said the contract was a significant investment by the agency. “Ajilon was chosen as the contractor after a comprehensive evaluation process, facilitated by the Department of Treasury and Finance in collaboration with the Department of the Attorney-General, followed by successful negotiations, which we began in February,” she said. In total, government contracts make up about 30 per cent of Ajilon’s business in WA. Currently, the company has contracts with the Department of Planning and Infrastructure and the Department of Treasury and Finance, and recently completed a further project for the Department of Industry and Resources. Ajilon’s other major clients include health insurer HBF and iron ore giant BHP Billiton. The Department of the Attorney-General is in charge of administering the state’s courts and tribunals system, managing the registry of births, deaths and marriages, and providing IT support to other agencies. The department also provides IT services to the Department of Corrective Services.
