This isn't a contract to outfit a few thousand police officers, it's all four main branches of the armed forces, meaning probably over a million individual units easily.
Actually, NSW switched over to the Glock 19.

I like SIGs, but the P320 is not one of my favorite SIG pistols, and I think the Army's requirements were misguided. Personally, I would have gone with Glock, given existing customer base in SOF units, and the fact that it is now a more mature design than the P320 family.

It's a lot of hot air, but I don't blame them for being frustrated.
Cry "Havoc," and let slip the hogs of war.
