Fujitsu will continue to provide IT services until June 2014.

Fujitsu has extended its contract with the Department of Defence in a deal worth $40 million per annum.

The 12-month contract extension is part of Fujitsu's Distributed Computing Central Services contract with the department and will run until June 2014.

Under the contract more than 450 Fujitsu personnel provide services to the department's chief information officers group, including IT help desk requirements, applications and IT service management tool support and project office functions.

"The Department of Defence is a core customer for Fujitsu in Australia," Glen Grant, group executive director -- Federal Government for Fujitsu Australia and New Zealand, said in a statement.

"The mutual success of our relationship over the past 15 years is set to continue as we invest further in building our local skill sets and service portfolio to meet the specific needs of the department."

Fujitsu also recently signed a eight-year managed services contract with the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade to provide a Microsoft customer relationship management (CRM) system which will be used to issue Australian passports.
