Hard on the heels of Fuji Xerox DMS securing the lucrative ABS printing contract for the same-sex marriage plebiscite, the federal government has handed out a raft of multi-million-dollar contracts and contract extensions to several major print companies.

Fuji Xerox’s Business Force division has won a $4.3 million extension to its six-year deal for the supply of ‘Printing of letters that are issued via outbound correspondence’ to the Australian Taxation Office (ATO). The contract, signed in 2013 after an open tender, has been extended to 2019 and is now worth a whopping $14.77 million.

Fuji Xerox Business Force also secured a $1.1 million ‘amendment value’ extension to its $4.4 million agreement to supply the ATO with ‘Bulk personalized printing and mailing services,’ and a $68,000 extension on a separate $1.09 million contract with the ATO for similar services.

Melbourne-based ID card and passport printer ABnote Australasia has sealed a $7.2 million contract with the Department of Human Services to provide ‘Card manufacture and personalization.’

Port Melbourne’s Computershare Communication Services picked up a $542,000 amendment value extension to its $2.2 million deal to supply ‘Bulk printing – adhoc bundle, product group E’ to the ATO until 2019, in addition to a $571,000 top-up on a separate $2.7 million agreement to supply the tax office with ‘Outbound correspondence (colour) print work.’ 

Last month, Computershare signed on for a $110,000 ‘amendment value’ to its $1.9 million ATO contract for ‘Printing of BAS work’ until 30 September 2017.

Sydney printer SEMA – recently acquired by IVE Group – won a $824,000 extension to its now $2.1 million contract to supply the ATO with ‘Bulk printing – adhoc bundle, product group E.’  SEMA also signed a $65,000 deal with the Australian Transaction Reports and Analysis Centre (AUSTRAC) for the ‘Provision of print and post services.’

Sydney-based digital communications and printing company Chandler added $301,000 to its $648,000 agreement to supply the ATO with an ‘Adhoc printing bundle’ until 2019. Melbourne firm Objective 3D will provide the Department of Defence with ‘Fused deposition modelling 3D printing system’ for $120,609.50.

Other companies to win federal printing contracts over the past month include Q-Print Group, Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu, Image Digital Solutions, Rolls Printing, Exponet, Roy E. Mayne and Son, JD Printing, Spectrum Graphics, Union Offset, IVE Group, Southern Colour, Australian Associated Press, Get Branded, Publication Perspectives, Adamson Printing and Canprint Communications.
