This Week in Government Tenders

03_02_17 (5)

This week’s highlight: Software as a Service (SaaS)

In a move to minimise overheads, many government departments are seeking Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions. This removes the need for departments to install and run applications on their own computers or in their own data centers. It also eliminates the expense of hardware acquisition, provisioning and maintenance, as well as software licensing, installation and support. This allows government to take advantage of proven infrastructure and software solutions thereby reducing the risks that were inherent in legacy government owned and maintained software solutions.

This week, two RFTs have been released seeking SaaS. The first requests a Human Resources Management System for the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA). Of the main requirements of this RFT is the ability to integrate with APRA’s existing payroll module and a preference for open source software (at least in part). This opportunity is for an initial three year term with the potential of another six years.

The second is for the Clean Energy Regulator, seeking a SaaS solution for use in Security Incident and Event Management. This is for an initial one year term expected to commence December this year with potential for another two year extension. Being a security related task, the department requires Baseline Security Clearances for all specified personnel on this tender.

There are no Industry Briefs being held for either RFT, and submissions are due by 9 Oct 17.
