More sellers invited to join Hardware Marketplace
The Digital Transformation Agency (DTA) has invited applications for vendors interested in joining the Hardware Marketplace panel for its two new categories of end-user and enterprise computing.
Sellers are now able to apply to join the two new categories through the federal government's AusTender website.
Applications will be open until 8 April at 3 pm ACT time. The two new categories will then be added to the Hardware Marketplace later in the year.
Once it is up and running, the End User Computing category will be the first category of the Marketplace that will be mandatory for all non-corporate commonwealth government entities to use.
It will replace the old ICT Hardware and Associated Services Panel as the mandated method for procuring end-user computing devices including desktops, mobile PCs and monitors, as well as associated services.
The new Enterprise Computing category will meanwhile include equipment including servers and server racks.
The Hardware Marketplace, which has been modelled after the Digital Marketplace procurement portal, launched in September with a single available category of enterprise storage. In December, the DTA commenced consultation on adding the two new categories.
The DTA next plans to consult on adding a new Mobility category covering tablets, mobile phones and mobile carriage services.
