​Solnet joins refreshed Government web services panel

Agencies now have 81 providers to choose from across 11 service categories.

The Department of Internal Affairs is revamping a slew of its all-of-government procurement panels.

The Department of Internal Affairs is revamping a slew of its all-of-government procurement panels.

Solnet is joining the 81-member all-of-government web services panel, the technology and digital services provider announced today.

The Department of Internal Affairs has contracted the vendors to provide web services within 11 categories to government agencies after a panel refresh late last year.

Panel procurement allows the 300 participating agencies to cut procurement costs by purchasing services without the need for a full tender.

Web services panel members deliver services such as information architecture, content design, user insight analytics and search engine optimisation, application testing, front- and back-end development, app development and technical support.

“We are very pleased to be part of the New Zealand Government’s web services panel. It’s a recognition of our team’s credentials and our position in the market as an end-to-end services provider,” said Mark Botherway, Solnet’s managing director.

Late last year, the Department of Internal Affairs went to tender to replace the common web services panel established in 2012. The move was one of a slew of other procurement panel changes.

"The Department is looking for credible providers who have the capability, capacity and experience to deliver web services in New Zealand," the tender said.

"They need to have a demonstrable track record in the provision of web services supported by customer references."

It was intended that the contract term of the agreement would be for three years with two one-year extensions.

Botherway said the New Zealand Government’s commitment to digitising services will result in better outcomes for the customers of agencies.

“We are enthusiastic about the opportunity for government to significantly improve services delivery through innovation, and look forward to our continued contribution to the implementation of world-class government digital services,” Botherway said.
