Queensland transport agencies release ICT tenders

The Queensland government has issued a Request for Information (RFI) for digital workspace solutions and related services for the Department of Transports and Main Roads (TMR).

The RFI will allow for the government to gather information on potential end user compute digital workspaces.

The contract covers ICT assets across Queensland that belong to the TMR.

According to technology news site ARN, the department is moving towards a cloud first strategy, however the technology within the department varies considerably.

Solutions would focus on the 10,000 desktops, laptops, and tablets operating within TMR, which are currently transitioning from Windows 7 to Windows 10.

Tenders must be submitted by Monday, March 23.

Also currently up for tender is Queensland Rail’s customer relationship management system. The system is directed towards Queensland Rail’s internal business units.

The Request for Offer (RFO) sets out a term of five years, with an optional two-year extension. Tenders must be submitted via the SAP Ariba Sourcing System.

The RFO is split into two parts. Phase one, which covers implementation must be fully costed by the prospective supplier. Phase two details possible future implementations.
