Major Office Machines Whole of Government Arrangements

Major Office Machines Arrangement II (MOMs II)

On 1 December 2016, the Department of Finance established a new MOMs II Panel (refer to the media release).

Use of the MOMs II Panel is mandatory for all Non-Corporate Commonwealth Entities subject to the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013. Corporate Commonwealth Entities can choose to opt-in to the arrangement.

The arrangement covers equipment, support/maintenance, consumables and additional optional products (excluding paper, which is purchased via the Whole of Government Stationery and Office Supplies Panel).

Panellists for MOMs II are:

  • Fuji Xerox Australia Pty Ltd.
  • Konica Minolta Business Solutions Australia Pty Ltd;
  • Kyocera Document Solutions Australia Pty Ltd; and
  • Ricoh Australia Pty Ltd.

Better Printing Guide

The Australian Government spends in excess of $50 million per annum on its copy paper printing. To minimise printing expenditure, the Major Office Machines Contract Administration Team has updated the Better Printing Guide and Poster to further raise awareness of the financial and environmental costs of printing. Black and white impressions cost approximately 10 times less than colour impressions and when combined with double sided printing can reduce costs by up to 83 per cent. A small change in your black and white to colour print ratio will lead to big savings.

The guide provides tips on how to reduce impression counts, manage colour to monochrome impression ratios and increase double sided printing – which will minimise printing related expenditure.

Please access GovTEAMS and request to join the MOMs II Community, which will allow users to access Panel documentation.
