AVA Groups wins near $A2 million contract to supply 6500 smart readers to DHS.

AVA Risk Group has received purchase orders for BQT smart readers from the Department of Human Services (DHS).

The contract estimates that requirements will be for the provision of approximately 6,500 readers and additional associated equipment over a planned implementation period of approximately 2 years.

Under the terms of the contract, the high security smart reader solution proposed by AVA and accepted by the end-user, will also be available to all Australian Government departments as part of the tender conditions and subsequent contract award. This may facilitate direct sourcing opportunities for other government departments.

“BQT’s custom high security smart cards and biometric readers have been trusted to protect access to some of Australia’s most critical government facilities for more than a decade,” said AVA Risk Group CEO Scott Basham.

“BQT has been selected as the provider of choice for numerous government facilities around the globe and with its comprehensive portfolio of innovative, high-security solutions, we are confident BQT’s footprint will continue grow in government and other key strategic sectors.”

Estimated revenue from DHS over the contract period at the anticipated volumes is expected to be $A1.8 million to $1.9 million.
