ASX Statement: Transfield Services extends $145m in social services contracts

Transfield Services today announced it has been awarded $145 million in contract extensions in the social services sector.

These include: retaining its contract with Austin Health in Victoria, with an initial term of five years, with the option of a three-year extension. The scope of work includes full preventative and reactive maintenance of Austin Health's three campuses at Austin Hospital (incorporating the Olivia Newton-John Cancer and Wellness Centre), Heidelberg Repatriation Hospital and the Royal Talbot Rehabilitation Centre, overseeing all critical clinical environments and their operational & service needs, with responsibility across most parts of each facility, and securing a one year extension to its existing NSW Land & Housing Corporation contract, building on a 12 year relationship, providing comprehensive maintenance to approximately 50,000 state properties throughout NSW. This adds to the Company’s extensive social housing portfolio which includes maintenance and planning services to approximately 32,000 houses in Western Australia.

“Having partnered with these key clients for over 12 years, we understand the sensitive nature of their business and the risk and complexities of delivering services within the health and social services sectors,” said Graeme Hunt, Transfield Services’ Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer. We operate as an extension of their capability and collaborate with our Government and private sector clients to provide innovative performance outcomes which are carefully balanced with the need to work in close proximity to the people they accommodate or care for.”

Transfield Services is also currently contracted with Queensland Health under a two year agreement to provide asset and building maintenance at the Gold Coast University Hospital, the largest clinical and research facility in Australia. Staff maintain facilities and equipment in operating theatres, wards and mental health facilities, working closely with doctors, nurse unit managers and hospital administrators.

The Company already provides employee assistance programmes, social/welfare services, land and property management, safety and logistics services across the Immigration and Defence Sectors for the Australian Federal Government.
