Office of NSW Procurement (NSWP) has issued and EOI for Contract Life-cycle Management Software.
NSWP requires an integrated system to efficiently manage its contract life-cycle management functions, from inception or renewal to completion and to monitor the performance of increasingly complex contracts.
The integrated system is required to facilitate improved customer relationship management and provide more complete information for performance reporting and business planning.
The Contract Life-cycle Management Software must deliver a capability for NSWP across the scope of its contract management activities.
NSWP manages over 200 contracts for the SCCB and for NSW Government agencies; this involves the administration of 1,182 supplier-agreements that covers in excess of $3.6 billion of sales per annum for the supply of more than 130,000 line items.
More than 275 NSW Government agencies buy from the goods and services contracts managed by NSWP. Approx $1.0bn in construction related contracts and consultant engagements are procured by around 50 agencies that use the NSWP procurement system for construction, supported by NSW Treasury.
The supplier agreements or contracts include a provision for NSWP to collect a levy from the contracted suppliers (known as Management Fee). NSWP currently deploys about 100 staff in total to develop and manage the contracts, and also to administer the collection of the Management Fees.
At present NSWP relies on a number of unintegrated systems to manage the contracts or related supporting processes. NSWP plans to acquire a single system to manage State and Agency specific contracts that can replace and/or integrate with a number of existing stand-alone systems.
NSWP is an office of the NSW Department of Commerce. It provides a range of services for government agencies, including the development of procurement processes. Its services include state contracts online solutions, procurement policies and Government tenders.
The closing date for responses is 13 November.
