The panel provides access to service providers that can help agencies:

  • Manage mobile phone fleets;
  • Manage telecommunication services contracts;
  • Improve billing and inventory management;
  • Procure telecommunications help desk support; and

As we’ve noted in previous posts, this whole of government panel is mandatory for Financial Management and Accountability Act 1997 (FMA) agencies, and optional for agencies under the Commonwealth Authority and Companies Act 1997 (CAC). State government agencies can use this panel.

A small number of companies may be added to the panel in the near future, as negotiations and contractual arrangements are finalised.

The Telecommunications Management Panel has an initial term of three years. The initial term may be extended by the Department of Finance and Deregulation for a further two, twelve-month periods.The panel for the provision of telecommunications management was described in the Request for Tender (RFT) issued by AGIMO in August 2010.
