ACC looking for panel of SAP support providers
- 18 June, 2009 17:43
The Australian Crime Commission (ACC) is seeking a qualified panel of providers to help with SAP support and ongoing maintenance.
The tender process was opened when the ACC decided to look for a panel of providers after using a single provider to implement a SAP-based Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution in 2006-07. The existing SAP solution is ECC 6, however, tender documents did not reveal the incumbent supplier.
The services will be provided at the ACC’s Canberra offices over a contract period of three years, with two one-year optional extensions. No financial details were released.
Panel candidates must have available staff with skills in at least the following: Financial modules; controlling modules; materials management modules; investment management modules; human resources modules; security; workflow; business intelligence; portal systems; ESS/MSS; ABAP programming; basis system support; help desk advice; SAP provided upgrade implementation; and day to day operational support.
The tender closes on July 7 with the winner selected on July 28 for a start date of August 10.
The ACC is a Federal Government agency that works to counter serious and organised crime, bringing together all arms of the nation’s intelligence gathering and law enforcement body.
The tender is one of many Federal Government agency offerings this month. This week, the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) opened a $450,000 tender seeking offers for an Information Technology Desktop Asset Management (ITDAM) solution.
The ABS tender came on the back of the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA) opening a tender to seek a service provider for a $200,000 Cisco telephony contract to boost its unified communications strategy.
And the Australian Tax Office (ATO) also recently opened a tender to seek mainframe technical specialists to provide support to its mainframe developer base and a tender seeking 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.
Finally, in late May, the Federal Government also announced it would create a panel of datacentre providers to supply space and services to agencies during the development of the whole-of-government datacentre strategy instigated as part of the Gershon review.
