I am pleased to announce that a Request for Tender (RFT) to establish a new whole-of-Australian Government (WoAG) Panel Arrangement for Stationery and Office Supplies (SOS) products and services has been released on AusTender, and this can be downloaded from FIN/018/16.
The arrangement seeks to meet the government’s SOS product and services requirements and deliver value for money.
An industry brief will be provided in early January 2017 to offer prospective Tenderers an overview of the RFT documentation and provide guidance on how to respond to the RFT. Details are contained within the RFT documentation released through AusTender.
I would like to acknowledge all those who provided feedback on the draft Statement of Requirements posted on the Department of Finance’s blog in November 2016. I am pleased by the quality of the comments and suggestions we received from both Entities and Industry, and your feedback has been considered in finalising the RFT.
I look forward to receiving a wide range of competitive responses.
