SAP solutions provider, Extend Technologies, has formally been accepted on the NSW Government ERP Services panel. This signals a new era in the provision of ERP services to NSW government agencies.
The NSW Government announced late last year that it was is shutting down its old contract system and tendering for ERP service providers to join a new panel under different terms.
The Contract 2020 ICT Services tender was the largest ICT services contract ever released in the NSW public service and encompassed a panel of over 300 suppliers covering more than 30 categories. Its objective was to save costs while delivering comparable levels of service using economies of scale.
“Being approved as a supplier for the provision of ERP systems implementation to NSW government agencies is a significant win for Extend”, Extend Technologies NSW Branch Manager, Dominic Frost, said.
“NSW Government is a heavy SAP user with a large number of agencies already using it across functions such as finance, human resources, payroll, real estate, maintenance, CRM and business intelligence.”
Extend has committed to deliver a model that drives consolidation and service improvement across the NSW public sector including the development of a NSW Government Payroll and HR reporting solution.
It also involves the provision of a series of ‘Managing for Success’ workshops and establishing an internship program for public sector employees to be seconded within an operational area of Extend to develop SAP skills.
