DTA enters WofG purchasing arrangement with Oracle

Oracle has established a whole-of-government purchasing arrangement through the Digital Transformation Agency (DTA) spanning its entire catalogue of service offerings.

The new agreement will make it easier for agencies to purchase Oracle hardware, software, cloud and service offerings while taking advantage of economies of scale, efficiencies and procurement flexibility.

The agreement will apply to federal, state and territory governments, and will give agencies access to competitive pricing and comprehensive terms and conditions to deliver front- and back-office digital transformation.

It will cover access to software licensing and support, hardware acquisition and hardware support, professional services and cloud services.

As part of the arrangement, Oracle will provide agencies with security, locally hosted data and full onshore disaster recovery capabilities through its second-generation local cloud regions in Sydney and Melbourne.

Oracle VP and Regional Marketing Director for ANZ Cherie Ryan said the arrangement builds on the company’s already strong partnership with the federal government.

“[The arrangement] is set to make it easier for government agencies to move to the next stage of their digitally enabled whole-of-government transformations,” she said.

“It comes at a time when Oracle continues to invest in the Australian market, including the recent openings of our Melbourne and Sydney second-generation cloud regions which offer public-sector customers a secure, local and future ready migration path to the cloud.”

According to the DTA, all non-corporate Commonwealth entities must make contracts with Oracle under the arrangement. Transition arrangements have been established for existing contracts.

“The coordinated approach to digital sourcing will make it easier for agencies to buy technology, drive innovation and get more value out of their investments,” the Agency said in an announcement.

The DTA also has volume sourcing arrangements with Rimini Street, Amazon Web Services, SAP, Microsoft, Concur and IBM.
