Federal Government ICT Procurement: The Year Ahead

  • What ICT will the Federal Government be buying in 2010-11?
  • Which agencies are planning to spend on what?

To discover the answers to these crucial questions join Intermedium for a thorough review of the Government’s ICT procurement intentions for the year ahead.

Our Year Ahead briefing will arm you with the information you need for success in the Federal Government ICT market in 2010-11.

There are a number of lead indicators that point to future opportunities.  Examined and interpreted together, they create a compelling forward picture.

Intermedium will examine each of these lead indicators in turn to create the larger picture.  These indicators include:

  • Procurement Plans

Issued by agencies by 1 July each year, these plans provide information on the nature and timing of planned procurements for the coming financial year. However, agencies are not obliged to publish all of their intentions.

So while what agencies do publish is valuable, the gaps can be filled in with an look at the .........................

  • Budget Allocations

The Australian Government releases an annual budget showing which initiatives are funded for the coming financial year. However, the government can and does ‘cherry pick’ what it wishes to highlight.

So while providing some pieces of the puzzle, the budget analysis should also be looked at in conjunction with....................

  • Expiring Contracts

Some categories of ICT are procured by agencies on a cyclical basis. The most obvious being hardware, telecommunications services and IT Managed Services. Significant intelligence can be gained by tracking expiring categories in these categories.

Add intelligence about key expiring contracts to knowledge about procurement plans, and knowledge about levels of budget funding, and genuine actionable insight emerges! Intermedium will deliver this insight at its 'Year Ahead' Briefing.

At the 'Year Ahead' briefing, Intermedium will also:

  • Analyse tenders data to reveal underlying trends by category and agency;
  • Examine the impact of coordinated procurement on the procurement landscape for the year; and
  • Provide information for the first time about the number and range of Panels, including the number which are up for renewal during the year.

Join us for this not to be missed 360 degree view of opportunities in the Federal Government ICT market.
