DTA plans Telecommunications Marketplace

The Digital Transformation Agency plans to launch a new whole-of-government Telecommunications Marketplace in early 2020.

The new marketplace will be usable by federal, state and local government agencies for their telecommunications procurement needs.

It will be designed to gradually replace the existing Mobile, Telecommunications Services Panel (TSP) and Internet Based Network Connection Services (IBNCS) procurement panels.

The new marketplace will provide easy access to technologies including data carriage internet connection and fixed voice services, dark fibre, as well as managed network, unified communications, contact centre and mobility services.

As with other DTA Marketplaces, the Telecommunications Marketplace will also be designed to make it easier for SMEs to access opportunities for securing government contracts.

The agency has released a draft Statement of Requirements and Head Agreement for the new marketplace on AusTender, and has issued a request for information seeking feedback on these drafts.

The request for information will remain open until 8 October, and the DTA plans to approach the market through AusTender later that month.
