The NSW Government is shutting down its old contract system and tendering for ERP service providers to join a new panel under different terms.
According to the tender document, Contract 2020 ICT Services is the largest ICT services contract ever released in the NSW public service and encompasses a panel of over 300 small, medium and large suppliers. It covers more than 30 categories.
The RFT states select qualified and well-performing contractors under the old system of contract 2626 will be transferred to the new ICT Services contract 2020.
The tender is being run by the NSW Department of Technology, Services & Administration, Government Chief Information Office (GSIO) and NSW Procurement (NSWP).
It targets accredited suppliers of SAP, Oracle and Mincom software and ERP SIMS systems integrators and aims to save costs while delivering comparable levels of service using economies of scale.
The agreements will run until February 28, 2012, and can be extended for up to three one-year periods each. The Government estimates business provided to contractors will equal $20 million a year.
All tenders must be submitted to the Government by January 28. For more information, visit the tender’s website.
