A suspension, an axing for Fuji Xerox all-of-govt contracts

Fuji Xerox suspended from one all-of-govt contract, axed from another

By Paul McBeth

Oct. 2 (BusinessDesk) - Fuji Xerox New Zealand has had its all-of-government printing contract suspended and its office supplies deal canned.

Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment general manager of government procurement John Ivil said the firm's print technology and associated services contract has been formally suspended, meaning Fuji Xerox won't be allowed to sign new customers on the all-of-government deal until it meets certain criteria that won't be made public, while the office supplies contract has been terminated.

"There are 93 agencies who are currently customers of FXNZ through the all-of-government contracts, who have been notified of this outcome," he said.

Fuji Xerox had accepted a voluntary suspension in July on those two contracts plus a third deal providing print devices and print device management services and was extended until October to allow for more talks between MBIE and the company.

In June, Japanese parent Fujifilm Holdings revealed $355 million of "inappropriate accounting" in operations in New Zealand and Australia between 2011 and 2016, according to a report by an independent investigation committee.

Last week, Fuji Xerox appointed former MBIE deputy chief executive of corporate services Peter Thomas as its new managing director, having hired him last year as chief operating officer.

MBIE said it won't comment further on the Fuji Xerox contracts.
