I am pleased to announce the establishment of the Whole-of-Australian-Government ICT Hardware and Associated Services Panel.

Finance entered into head agreements with an initial tranche of six preferred tenderers on 24 September 2015. The head agreements are in place until 30 June 2018, with options to extend for up to three periods of 12 months each.

It is mandatory for Non-Corporate Commonwealth Entities to procure desktop, notebook and mobile computers, virtual desktop computers, and monitors from the Panel. Associated services, servers and server racks are optional. The panel is also optional for Corporate Commonwealth Entities and all states and territories.

The initial panellists to be added to the panel are:

  • Acer Computers Australia Pty Limited
  • Dell Australia Pty Limited
  • Ethan Group Pty Limited
  • Mac 1 Pty Limited
  • OPC IT Pty Limited
  • Samsung Electronics Australia Pty Limited

As there is a large number of preferred tenderers, Finance has managed the execution of head agreements in tranches.  Future panellist announcements and information about the ICT Hardware and Associated Services Panel will be released over coming weeks.
