Leidos wins $ 8.4 million software development contract with government
Leidos Australia signed a contract with the Australian Signals Directorate (ASD) worth $ 8.4 million, covering software development services.
According to an ASD spokesperson, the services provided will integrate with its other internal software and systems.
The decision to side with the Australian arm of the US-headquartered Defense Information Technology Specialist has resulted in offering the best value for money while at the same time meeting ASD specifications and requirements.
Leidos’ contract is also used to support ASD’s legal functions, the spokesperson added. These functions include the collection and communication of foreign electromagnetic intelligence, the prevention and disruption of offshore cybercrime, as well as support to the public and private sectors.
The contract period started from July 1, 2021 and is scheduled to run until June 30, 2022, but was only recently released.
This contract with ASD is the latest feather from Leidos, who has made a name for himself in the country in recent years.
Indeed, John Caucis, senior analyst at industry analysis firm Technology Business Research (TBR), claimed that in 2020, between 45% and 50% of the US $ 1 billion turnover of the company was from Australia.
In addition, the increase in Leidos’ international revenue in 2020, up 17.5% year-over-year, is largely due to aggressive growth in Australia, he said.
In fact, Caucis claimed that Leidos’ success in Australia was so great that it could be leveraged for expansion into the wider Asia Pacific (APAC) region.
