Ministry of Justice to update Office system

The Ministry of Justice is undertaking a major project to swap all of its 5100 PCs from Microsoft Office 97 to Office 2007, as it is on the search for two project managers to oversee the venture.

In two requests for proposals (RFP) issued this week, the Ministry stated it needs a programme manager and an applications project manager for its Office Replacement Project.

The Ministry says its Office Replacement Project is a substantial change programme that aims to replace Office 97 with Office 2007 on all 5100 ministry and judiciary PCs.

Currently most staff use Office 97, as some critical Justice Sector business applications are hard coded to use the software.

According to the Ministry, the project requires well-structured management to ensure business objectives are met in the current financial year.

Therefore it is looking for a programme manager to ensure that each of the three workstreams in the project – business readiness, infrastructure and bespoke application readiness – are managed and executed effectively, and to provide a central point of ownership and accountability for the management of the project.

In addition, the Ministry needs an applications project manager for the bespoke application readiness workstream. This will ensure the Ministry’s enterprise and small business applications work in the new Office 2007 desktop processing environment.

The Ministry is seeking proposals from individuals with the capability and expertise to provide these services, saying one or more people may be invited to the contract negotiations stage.

Responses for both RFPs are due Friday, February 22 at 4pm. More details are available on the Government Electronic Tenders Service website under ICNNZ reference numbers 20780 and 20781.
