NSW extends government ICT services scheme
The NSW Department of Finance, Services and Innovation has extended the mandatory government ICT services procurement scheme through to 2021.
The scheme, which was introduced in 2013 as part of the NSW Government Digital Strategy, was designed to make it easier for companies to do business with government by reducing administrative costs and simplifying the tender process.
It consolidated a range of product and service categories into 17 service categories, ranging from architecture and design, data centre services and server management to software, risk management and learning services.
The scheme has two tiers: one for low-risk contracts valued at up to $150,000 and the other for higher-risk contracts valued at over $150,000. Suppliers can apply to list on one or both tiers, and new suppliers are able to apply to join the scheme at any time.
