The long awaited announcement of who the IT Service providers on the 2020 ICT Services Panel are has been made in a typically low key fashion, with a website update.

2020 is the largest ever ICT Services contract released in the NSW Public Sector, and is scheduled to run from 1 March 2009 to 28 February 2012.

The ICT Services contract page provides an Approved Suppliers List which details 306 approved suppliers across 30 different categories of ICT services.  The suppliers are approved to provide services for projects at different levels, based on the experience and turnover of the company.  By far the greater majority of suppliers are able to work on projects up to $10m.

The listing also shows that a number of non-NSW headquartered companies, particularly from the ACT have made it onto the Panel.
