City of Darwin announces $1m in ICT contracts
More than $1 million worth of ICT tenders has just been announced by the City of Darwin.
This follows a recent review which highlighted opportunities to improve service and device management, as well as update ageing hardware.
The three tenders include contracts for printing, laptops and computers, and an integrated telephone system. Prospective tenderers can apply for one or multiple contracts.
Local suppliers are given preference through the council’s weighted tender system.
“City of Darwin takes our position as a major contributor to the Territory economy very seriously,” said CEO Scott Waters.
“We aim to boost the economy and support local jobs wherever possible.
“I’m committed to ensuring local procurement is a priority for City of Darwin; providing the local ICT industry every opportunity to participate in Council’s tender processes.”
This major investment in ICT infrastructure aims to improve the council’s capabilities and capacity by providing our 350 council employees with greater mobility and flexibility, along with improving overall productivity.
“Through these contracts City of Darwin continues our focus on integrating smart technology and systems into everything we do,” Waters said.
“Investing in these technologies improves the delivery of services to our community, enhances the lives of our community and makes City of Darwin a preferred place to work.”
Tenders for all three contracts opened Thursday, 4 April. The printing and telephone contracts both close Friday, 26 April at 2 pm, while the PC, laptop and other mobile device tender closes Friday, 3 May at 2 pm.
