Australia’s Department of Defence has announced the 32 providers for its information communication and technology provider panel.

Within the groups, ASG Group, Araza, Dialog, DXC Technology and DWS are among the panellists that will offer digital services for the government, with the ICT services panel set to run until 24 June 2023.

Defence released a request for tender (RFT) on 30 January, in a bid to establish its new information communication and technology provider arrangement (ICTPA).

As previously reported by ARN, the ICTPA is a new panel arrangement and covers three service towers: systems integration; application services; and IT services.

The new panel arrangement is aimed at replacing the department’s outgoing Applications Managed Services Partnership Arrangement (AMSPA) scheme, worth $340 million over its five-year life-span.

The expiring AMSPA scheme, which was established in 2011, and saw Accenture, BAE Systems Australia, CSC, IBM, and HP Australia chosen as preferred industry partners for major Defence contracts over the past five years.

The aim of the new panel arrangement is to enable the department to become a “smarter and more sophisticated buyer of ICT services through the implementation of an adaptive sourcing framework”, the RFT documents stated.

The move to fill its incoming IT services procurement panel arrangement with local suppliers follows a call in December last year for partners to populate a new procurement panel for the provision of internet services to its forces in Australia and around the world.
