DTA expanding Hardware Marketplace

The Digital Transformation Agency is consulting on the introduction of two new categories on the Hardware Marketplace panel, covering end-user devices and enterprise computing.

The new categories have been listed on AusTender for industry and government feedback, and an approach to market will be issued through the portal in late February.

Once the new categories are added, government agencies will be required to purchase their laptops, desktops and monitors through the End User Devices category of the Marketplace.

Agencies will also have the option of buying servers and server racks through the new Enterprise Computing category.

The DTA is also concurrently consulting with both public servants and sellers on improvements to the government's digital sourcing capability.

Based on feedback received to date, the DTA has proposed to implement changes including creating a procurement information hub, producing guidance and tool and simplifying procurement practices.

The consultation will run until 11 January.
