The government's new Marketplace has a new look and two new ICT service channels ready for qualified suppliers.

The Marketplace reshapes government ICT procurement, simplifying how the NZ government buys and lowers the barriers for suppliers to provide services 

"It is open to all suppliers who meet the entry criteria – no current contract with government is needed," a notice released yesterday explained. "It has standardised commercial terms – a single set to cover all government customers."

The Marketplace was opened in September last year for the software as a service channel. Now two more channels, professional services and the managed services, have been added.

Managed services include:
• Application management and administration services
• Server management and administration services
• Database management and administration services
• Storage/archive management and administration services
• Network management and administration services
• User device support services
• Service management services
• Service aggregation services
• Cloud service management

ICT professional services include:
• Infrastructure support services
• Cloud transition services

The Marketplace on-boarding process is the primary procurement, where suppliers and information about their proposed services need to be assessed against criteria.

The supplier selects the services they wish to apply for on the Marketplace website and accepts the collaborative marketplace agreement, provide information on their business, authorised personnel, financial viability and respond to questions regarding their experience, capability, and capacity. 

When a supplier is awarded services, they then create a catalogue for their services in Marketplace for review before it is published.
