NSW introduces standard framework for ICT consulting

The NSW Government is introducing a new standard commercial framework for consulting services contracted under the state's ICT Services Scheme.

The ICT consulting framework, developed by the state's Department of Customer Service, will go into effect from 15 March.

The framework has been developed to simplify operations for both buyers and sellers of consulting services.

It aligns the procurement of ICT consulting services under the scheme with the commercial framework used in the Performance and Management Services Scheme.

It includes capped daily rates for consulting fees based on engagement and role type, as well as a minimum scale discount structure ranging from 2% for contracts over $250,000 to 7% for contracts over $1 million.

The framework also includes a standard policy for billable disbursements and recommended resource mix targets based on the experience and type of role of ICT consultants. This includes a less than 18% mix of senior management staff and a more than 62% mix of junior staff.

The department's ICT Category Management team will hold two online briefing sessions next month for suppliers and agencies covering how to use the new framework.
