Royal Australian Navy calls for partners on five-year information system modernization

The Royal Australian Navy is preparing to update its Navy Information Management System (NIMS) and is looking for partners on the five-year undertaking.

NIMS is a suite of applications developed by the navy to help it gather and manipulate a range of classified and sensitive business intelligence and warfighting data.

“To remain effective these applications require ongoing maintenance and development,” the Australian government tender read. It was further said that the navy is looking for qualified and experienced organisations that can provide innovative and ongoing information technology services.

The five-year contract is to start in July next year and the call for bids will end October 30, 2016.
