Treasury is deciding if it wants to keep an IT project management plan in-house or put it out to tender next month.
It held a forum in its Wellington office on Friday last week with vendors to discuss its needs which will include finance, human resources, IT and supply chain management.
In a speech released on the Government Electronic Tenders (GETS) website, State sector performance group deputy secretary Peter Mersi said it may continue to provide many of those services in-house with existing technology.
“Until we have the information and analysis to support a specific process or technology decision, we don’t know what products and services we may purchase. Briefing vendors early in this process is intended to encourage vendors, regardless of their size, to have an opportunity to compete for work that might arise out of this process.”
He also said that Treasury is neutral on whether those services are provided by one vendor or a consortium.
A timeline indicates a request for proposal is set to be released on GETS in November under ICCNZ reference 27509 and a vendor selected in January 2010.
