This Week’s Highlight: ICT Panel Opportunity- High Performance Computing

For those of you in ICT, you will know that government opportunities are ongoing. Depending on your company’s experience and the range of ICT products and services you provide, you are either on a rolling program of tender submissions or on the look out for just the right requirement. This week we look at a panel opportunity issued by CSIRO. Panel opportunities are usually a good consideration for most companies as a low risk entry point into government contracting.

This opportunity is seeking responses from suitably qualified and experienced service providers for the provision of Scientific Computing Goods and Services for the CSIRO. The CSIRO is Australia’s national science agency and innovation catalyst who works with Australian universities, government departments and major Australian industry to solve the greatest scientific challenges of our country through innovative science and technology. The proposed panel will include both the provision of goods and services within the following broad categories:

GOODS:

– Scientific Compute hardware such as blade servers and chassis, and rack mounted systems
– Data Hardware including massively scalable data storage solutions
– Tape Libraries and Tape Media
– Interconnects and Storage Fabrics
– Scientific Compute Software Licenses
– Specialist Cooling systems for Data Centres
– Containerised, prefabricated High-performance Compute (HPC) data centres solutions
– Data Centre Analysis and Control Hardware

SERVICES:

– Specialist HPC Technical resources
– Support Services for Hardware
– Provision of externally hosted High-performance Compute capability as a utility service
– Provision of maintenance and support for existing hardware

Any potential tenderers should note the mandatory criteria which requires evidence of supply to one of the supercomputer centres that operate High Performance Computing (HPC) facilities in the Top500 or Green500 during the previous 5 years or evidence of similar types of Goods and/or Services in support of High-Performance Computing and Data installations/systems during the previous 5 years.

The intention is for the panel to be placed by 1 September this year for an initial term of 3 years. The closing date for the RFT is 22nd April 2021.
