Australia — New Defence Facilities Opened In Canberra

Par­lia­men­tary Sec­re­tary for Defence Sen­a­tor David Feeney today offi­cial­ly opened the new Defence Ser­vice Cen­tre in the north­ern Can­ber­ra sub­urb of Mitchell.
Sen­a­tor Feeney said the cen­tre is the key to Defence’s plans to con­sol­i­date Infor­ma­tion and Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Tech­nol­o­gy ser­vice desks under its new Infor­ma­tion Tech­nol­o­gy Ser­vice Man­age­ment Busi­ness Reform Pro­gram, which is admin­is­tered by Defence’s Chief Infor­ma­tion Offi­cer Group.

“The move to the Mitchell facil­i­ty will con­sol­i­date approx­i­mate­ly 350 staff from four dif­fer­ent sites around the Can­ber­ra region to the new premis­es at Flem­ing­ton Road, Mitchell,” Sen­a­tor Feeney said. 

“This will enable stan­dard­i­s­a­tion and ratio­nal­i­sa­tion of ser­vice deliv­ery process­es, and has result­ed in sig­nif­i­cant sav­ings in oper­at­ing costs. 

“The con­sol­i­da­tion of ser­vice desks into the Defence Ser­vice Cen­tre in Mitchell is already sav­ing Defence over half a mil­lion dol­lars a year in rent. 

“The con­sol­i­da­tion is in-line with the objec­tives of the Defence Strate­gic Reform Pro­gram and the Defence Infor­ma­tion and Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Tech­nol­o­gy Strat­e­gy, released in Octo­ber 2009. 

“This new ser­vice cen­tre has been wel­comed by the Gun­gahlin Com­mu­ni­ty Coun­cil as an injec­tion of busi­ness into the Gun­gahlin region,” Sen­a­tor Feeney said.
