Award of MSP to Downer

20 March 2018

 

Earlier this year, Christopher Pyne MP, announced that Downer Defence Services had been awarded as one of only four successful Major Service Provider (MSP) teams to the Department of Defence’s Capability Acquisition and Sustainment Group (CASG). Downer Defence Services consists of AGIS, Envista (Downer companies) along with DXC Technology, SYSTRA Scott Lister and Providence Consulting.

 

This result presents a major opportunity to build our workforce as well as develop our existing teams. We expect 2018 and onwards to present substantial more opportunities for AGIS.

 

Following on from our successful MSP notification, we were also successful in winning our first Integrated Work Package (IWP), taking on the above the line work within Joint Systems Division’s Critical Systems Branch. Click here to see what Minister Pyne said about the announcement.

This March, AGIS is supporting Fiona Jones and her team mates; Dom, Sam and Zac to raise funds for Oxfam Australia. The team, Foot Lose, will start and finish a 100 km walk together through the Victorian Dandenong Ranges and Yarra Valley in 48 hours.

  • How to successfully break past the 75 km mark;
  • How to fit a pack to prevent blisters; and
  • “It’s just one foot in front of the other”.
