The ATO is pleased to announce a Request for Proposal (RFP) which seeks proposals for a tool that will enable the governance and orchestration of workloads across private, community and public cloud environments, with associated services to assist with implementation and maintenance of the tool across the ATO environment.

The ATO requires a public/private cloud integration solution that allows management and migration of workloads seamlessly between internal and external clouds through a self-service interface.   This solution is expected to comprise software product/s and technical and project management services to customise the software to install, integrate, automate and port ATO workloads between various cloud environments and on premise IT infrastructure and services.

The tool is expected to deliver a strategic capability that will enable an automated and contestable ICT platform into the future, including spanning across all ATO technology platforms and not being tied to a particular platform or technology.

If a suitable tool is identified as a result of evaluating proposals the ATO may enter into a Deed of Standing Offer with the successful respondent.

Proposals must be lodged electronically through AusTender ( using ATM ID: 15.33 by 5.00pm (AEST) 27th April 2015.

Technical, procedural or administrative questions in relation to this RFP may also be directed to the Commonwealth contact officer as follows:
