The Australian Tax Office (ATO) has opened a tender to seek mainframe technical specialists to provide support to its mainframe developer base.
Candidates must have an “extremely high level of experience and expertise with both mainframe and the ATO’s implementation of the supporting set of products”, according to the tender documents.
A 12-month contract – with one 12-month extension option – is on offer with chosen personnel required to start on July 1.
The mainframe technical specialists will work within the ATO’s Enterprise Applications team and must have experience with at least the following mainframe technologies: MVS/CICS, ISPF, TSO, Advantage/Gen, TELON, SCLM, COBOL, DB2, REXX, JCL and MQ Series.
The tender closes June 23 at 2pm with evaluation of bids to be completed by June 26.
The tender invitation follows on from news last week the ATO was looking for system testers to prod and poke its ICT infrastructure in its multi-agency initiative aimed at simplifying business-to-government reporting, the Standard Business Reporting (SBR) program.
