The Victorian Government has launched a tender for a Microsoft-certified Large Account Reseller (LAR) to manage its software licensing and supply agreements with Microsoft.
According to the tender documents, the LAR will be required to supply licences, CD media and manuals to all government schools throughout Victoria as well as the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development.
An online portal will also need to be maintained to keep an inventory of popular software along with helpdesk services with a tracking system. Current prices will need to be constantly updated by the LAR and support services provided.
The documents state the LAR tender is in place thanks to recent volume licensing agreements put in place between the department and Microsoft.
Monthly reports will need to be provided to the Victorian Government.
Submissions - in hard copy - must be submitted to the department by December 22, 2009.
