The Commerce Commission is seeking a new supplier for its telephony solution.
The commission currently operates a Siemens solution in its three office locations, Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch, used by a total of approximately 230 people.
The current system does not meet the medium to long term needs of the commission and, according to the Request for Proposal (RFP), is not cost effective and at times unreliable.
The new supplier must provide all infrastructure for the telephony solution, as well as all the software and network connectivity, including a remote connection for administrative purposes, along headsets and digital handsets.
Mobile technology solutions, however, are not part of the scope of the RFP.
The commission will run a single-stage tender process and the closing date for submission of requests for proposal is 17 January 2011, at 4pm. The preferred supplier will be identified on 31 January but the contract award date is yet to be determined.
All correspondence with Commerce Commission regarding the RFP content and process must be directed via email only to Paul Lovett at Paul.Lovett@comcom.govt.nz.
Proposals must be sealed, labelled “Response to RFP – Supply of Telephony Solution” and sent to:
