This Week's Highlight - Cloud Services Panel

The government trend towards the use of panels continues, and this week we see the release of the Cloud Services Panel from the Digital Transformation Agency (DTA). This is a refresh of the existing DTA Cloud Services Panel which commenced in 2015 and provides an opportunity for new companies to join. Panels provide a mechanism by which multiple government agencies can access the market without having to undertake a full Request for Tender process. For industry it’s usually an easier application process with a higher likelihood of success than an exclusive tender.

For this particular panel, the DTA is not placing a limit on the number of companies who can join. If you are already on the DTA Cloud Services Panel, there is no further action to take unless you wish to expand or vary your service offering. However for new companies wishing to join, the following services are requested:

– Software as a Service (SaaS);

– Platform as a Service (PaaS);

– Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS); and

– Specialist Cloud Services (SCS).

It is to be noted that services must at a minimum meet the ‘Essential Characteristics of Cloud Services’ as defined by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). It is also important that non-compliances are minimised as negotiations are limited (usually not entered into), and any non-compliance will significantly compromise your submission.

This RFT closes 30 July 18, and the panel will operate until the end of March 19 with the option to extend for a further two years.
