Victoria taps VendorPanel to run eServices platform
The Victorian Government has appointed local start-up VendorPanel to manage the government’s eServices platform.
VendorPanel will take over from SAP Ariba as the company responsible for providing the system for ICT services procurement to all government departments across the state government.
The online VendorPanel procurement system will allow suppliers to upload company information and supporting information, such as insurance certificates, during registration, avoiding the need to have to provide this information with each individual tender bid.
The new eServices register will also use a simplified contract structure designed to make it easier for smaller businesses to win government tenders.
The agreement forms part of the state government’s Information Technology Strategy 2016–2020.
VendorPanel launched in Melbourne in 2010 and now has more than 700 government and corporate clients nationwide.
“VendorPanel are a fantastic local company providing local jobs and investment — and now its product will make doing business with the Victorian Government a whole lot easier,” Victorian Special Minister of State Gavin Jennings said.
“Victoria’s great tech and eServices sector will find the VendorPanel system more user-friendly and efficient — and I’m proud this agreement will be supporting local jobs.”
