Bids for Defence IT service panel open

The Department of Defence has released a formal request for tender to establish a new panel of ICT service providers from around Australia.

Defence released a request for tender on 30 January in a bid to establish its new Information Communication and Technology Provider Arrangement (ICTPA).

The ICTPA is a new panel arrangement that will cover three service towers: systems integration, application services and IT services.

The aim of the new panel arrangement is to enable the department to become a “smarter and more sophisticated buyer of ICT services through the implementation of an adaptive sourcing framework”.

The current proposed term of the ICTPA is five years, with a three-year extension option, followed by the possibility of a further two-year extension option.

The new panel arrangement is aimed at replacing the Defence Department’s current Applications Managed Services Partnership Arrangement (AMSPA) scheme, which was worth $340 million over its five-year shelf-life.

Accenture, BAE Systems Australia, CSC, IBM and HP Australia were the chosen service providers for AMSPA.

Potential ICT service providers for ICTPA have until 28 February to place their bids, and a vendor briefing in Canberra will take place on 7 February.

Defence expects all successful bidders to sign up to a common, standard deed of agreement.

“The Commonwealth may exclude from further consideration any tender which exhibits significant non-compliance with the deed,” Defence warned.
