Queensland Health (through Queensland Health Shared Services Partner (QHSSP) ) has issued a Request for Offer (RFO) for a pilot Automated Accounts Payable System to be conducted in West Moreton and South Burnett Health Service Districts.
Following an evaluation of the pilot, a determination will be made as to whether or not the system should be rolled out across Queensland Health. The solution must integrate with the existing SAP financial system.
Queensland Health has undergone significant changes in recent years. A new Director-General, Mick Reid, was appointed to Queensland Health in June. He is tasked with completing the Queensland Government’s $10 billion five-year Health Action Plan that was launched in 2005.
Prior to taking up this appointment, Mr Reid was Federal Health Minister Nicola Roxon’s Chief of Staff and was involved in initiating the Rudd Government’s health reform agenda. Between 1997 and 2002, Mr Reid was Director-General of NSW Health. More recently, he was the first Director-General appointed to the NSW Ministry for Science and Medical Research in 2004.
Queensland Health has a $7.15 billion budget and employs nearly 65,000 staff.
