The NSW Department of Education and Communities (DEC) is looking to a broader market after a previous Request for Quotation (RFQ) to restricted number of suppliers did not result in an awarded contract. Respondents to the initial RFQ are invited to respond to the Request for Proposal (RFP).
The RFP by the DEC states that a single supplier is preferred, however there could potentially be multiple suppliers. It is expected that the supplier will deliver products and services including off-the-shelf (COTS) software application, implementation and project management services and support services for TAFE Online (TOL) solution.
The solution requirement is for the supplier to provide an improved online education environment through more mobile online services that will enhance the output of information on multiple devices in any location.
TAFE NSW Online (TOL) solution aims to place TAFE NSW in a solid position of growth in the online education market share. The suppliers have until May 16 2014 to register their RFP and are encouraged to provide their best price(s) within their proposal.
