Telecommunications Services Panel Request for Tender

Author: 
John Sheridan - FAS Technology & Procurement

I am pleased to announce that the Request for Tender (RFT) to establish a Whole-of-Australian-Government Telecommunication Services Panel (TSP) has been released on AusTender (FIN15BPAM2390).

I would like to acknowledge all those who provided comments on the Discussion Paper, draft Head Agreement and Statement of Requirement that were posed to the Department of Finance’s blog in March 2016. Feedback has been supportive and I’m delighted by the quality of the comments and suggestions that we’ve received.

Not all of the suggestions were incorporated into the final version of the Statement of Requirement (SOR). However Finance has established a register of suggestions that will be considered prior to any future updates of the SOR.

As discussed in the blog Finance intends to establish the panel under the ICT Deliverables Head Agreement and the specific terms of conditions of the TSP will be provided as Schedule 3 – Module 4. Finance is willing to entertain suggestions relevant to Module 4 and has already made some changes following feedback received via the blog.

The TSP aims to offer Agencies a reduction in cost for internet based network connection services and simply the procurement process for vendors seeking to do business with the Australian Government. I look forward to receiving a wide range of competitive responses.

If you have any questions about the RFT process please email the Tender Officer at tsp@finance.gov.au.au

John
