The NSW Parliament’s new intranet must be in production before the NSW State election in March 2015, according to a notice of a request for proposal (RFP) published on NSW eTendering.
The Parliament will be transitioned from Lotus Domino to other platforms, including Microsoft SharePoint, over a period of two years, beginning with its intranet.
The scope of the RFP is to seek services to design, build and migrate the Parliament’s current intranet from Lotus Domino (Version 8.5) to Microsoft SharePoint, in either on-premises, cloud or hybrid form.
The Government has cautioned against making any changes to the current information architecture, graphical design layout or content, stating that this is neither required nor desirable.
While a notice has been placed on NSW eTendering, the RFP itself has only been published through the eQuote Management system which allows agencies to undertake online quoting activities through prequalified suppliers and standing panel arrangements.
Responses to the RFP will only be considered from organisations registered under the NSW Government’s ICT Services prequalification scheme, category “M06 Web Design & Content Management Services including delivery as a service”.
The RFP closes on October 15 at 2pm.
