Queensland Government Standing Offer Arrangement (SOA) ICTSS.1804
The Queensland Government preselects suppliers for their eligible customers to buy from an existing arrangement for simpler, faster, and more cost-effective procurement. In early 2019 NewBase successfully tendered for being on the Standing Offer Arrangement (SOA) ICTSS.1804 ‘Whole of Government’ panel. The SOA applies to all Qld Government entities.
Being preselected means the costs of performing the tender process is avoided for potential government entities. The key objectives of ICTSS.1804 are to establish a pre-qualified panel arrangement for the provision of ITMaaS with proficient service providers that can deliver cost-effective and high-quality solutions.
The optional ICT Service Categories available under the ITMaaS arrangement include:
- End User Compute
- Network Management
- IaaS, PaaS and Cloud Services
- Application Development and SaaS
- Printing and Imaging
ITMaaS eligible customers receive the following Cross Functional Disciplines:
- IT Service Management
- ICT Service Desk including Onsite Support
- ICT Security Management Practices
The cross-functional disciplines apply to all of the ICT Service Categories, to provide users with seamless end-to-end services. Suitable Government departments & Government related organisations can select service providers from this ICTSS.1804 panel without going through a tender or three quote process. The SOA is also open to ‘Not for Profit’ organisations.
