ICT company Data#3, telecommunications contractor ENGIE Services and five Western Australian companies providing Aboriginal heritage and archaeological support services have been awarded contracts by the Public Transport Authority of WA.
Data#3 has won a $3.97 million contract to replace the PTA corporate IT network that will reach end of life within the next three years.
The company, which was awarded the work over two other companies, is due to complete the work by March 2021.
PTA also awarded ENGIE Services a $1.14 million contract to supply and install equipment for on-board entertainment on the Transwa Prospector rail service and the road coach fleet and provide ongoing technical support.
ENGIE will also devise a ‘bring your own device’ application, allowing passengers to access content and information about travel schedules and food and drink menus on their phone or laptop.
The contract, which ENGIE won ahead of six other submissions, is due to finish in March 2025.
Meanwhile, Moodjar Consultancy, Yunga Foundation, R. & E. O’Connor, Extent Heritage and Terra Rosa Cultural Resource Management have been awarded a $2.2 million contract to be part of a panel providing Aboriginal heritage and archaeological support services.
Potential services provided by the panel include archeological and ethnographic surveys and heritage services to ensure the PTA complies with heritage laws and agreements.
The panel has been established to assist the procurement needs for Metronet projects but other divisions can also obtain services under the arrangement.
Initially, the panel will be in operation for a three-year term until March 2023, with an option to extend until March 2025.
