DTA debuts Telecommunications Marketplace

The Digital Transformation Agency has launched its latest whole-of-Australian-government ICT services procurement portal: the Telecommunications Marketplace.

The new marketplace will replace the existing Mobile and Telecommunications Services as a single point of contact for acquiring a range of 11 categories of telecommunications and related services.

The 11 categories are data carriage services, internet carriage services, fixed-line voice carriage services, managed network services, unified communications services, managed voice services, dark fibre services, contact centre systems, enterprise mobility services, satellite services and managed router services.

An initial list of 26 telecommunications service providers, including major players such as Telstra, Optus, TPG, Macquarie Telecom and Vocus, have been onboarded as sellers at the launch of the marketplace.

"The new Telecommunications Marketplace delivers a service that helps agencies to continue their digital transformation," commented Lucy Poole, General Manager of the DTA's Sourcing and Enabling Division.

"It will be launched through the ICT Procurement Portal with new functions to make buying and selling even easier, and will be the go-to platform for selling telecommunications to government."

The Telecommunications Marketplace joins the Digital Marketplace and the Cloud Marketplace as procurement portals established by the DTA.
