In an effort to optimise IT services, the Department of Corrections is outsourcing its IT services.
According to request for information (RFI) documents released this week, it relies on IT services and this demand is growing every year with an increasing number of users.
The RFI has been developed so the Department can understand its service delivery functions. While some services are already outsourced, the Department wants to optimise the way that services are delivered to allow suppliers to operate more effectively.
The Department is also interested in exploring new options for service provision that may include changes to the ownership model around some or all of its IT assets.
It will use the information gathered from this RFI to develop one or more request for proposal (RFP) documents for the supply of the services. The RFP will only be sent to short listed vendors.
The deadline for replies is Monday, August 31. More details are available on the Government Electronic Tenders website under ICCNZ reference 26848.
