Outsourcing part of Australia Post deal with ABnote

As part of the deal struck to sell PostConnect, Post has contracted out personal stamps and payslips to ABnote. ABnote has been awarded a 3 year contract for all printing services as currently provided by PostConnect to Australia Post. This was revealed in the FWC last week.

When questioned by the CWU about the outsourcing of stamps and payslips and no tender process, Post said the contracting out was authorised by Post boss, Mr Ahmed Fahour, as part of the sale purchase agreement between Australia Post and ABnote. Post said their Procurement Policy does not require Post to go to tender for any products or services and may instead directly negotiate with a supplier.

The Philatelic group will continue to be responsible for the “issuing” of personalised stamps, while ABnote will perform a digital printing service.
