This Week’s Highlight: Telecommunications Marketplace Panel

The Digital Transformation Agency (DTA) has been established to improve digital and ICT capability across the Commonwealth Government. To enable this, DTA has set out to establish a “Digital Marketplace” of service providers across a range of categories to enable government to access pre-qualified digital sellers more efficiently and to provide greater opportunities for small and medium enterprises (SMEs) to offer their services. While the Hardware Marketplace Request for Tender (RFT) just closed, this week DTA has issued a RFT for the Telecommunications Marketplace Panel.

The Telecommunications Marketplace allows a broad range of Australian Government and other approved entities to purchase a range of telecommunications services within specified categories against which a panel of suppliers will be established. Once the panel is operational, DTA will provide opportunity from time to time to refresh the panel ensuring new players in the market have a chance to bid. This RFT is for the following categories:

– Data Carriage Services

– Internet Carriage Services

– Fixed Line Voice Carriage Services

– Managed Network Services

– Managed Unified Communications Services

– Managed Voice Services

– Dark Fibre Services

– Contact Centre Systems

– Mobility Services

– Satellite Services

– Managed Router Services

The Telecommunications Marketplace supersedes the existing Telecommunications Services Panel expanding on the services currently made available to Buyers to procure (e.g. Managed Network Services, Enterprise Mobility Services etc.) As the telecommunication industry evolves, it is likely that new categories will be added in the future. The closing date for the RFT is 20th January 2020.
