120 Federal Government agencies have now published their procurement plans for the 2008-09 financial year. Intermedium's analysis shows the six largest agencies listing 18 projects during the first quarter (July - September 2008).
While some of these procurement dates may seem like wishful thinking, Intermedium's analysis of previous year's data shows that more than 50% of projects listed in procurement plans (that go to market during the year) do so within the procurement window.
Intermedium has identified 374 ICT projects listed in agency procurement plans and published on AusTender for 2008-09. It shows the total number of ICT projects is down slightly on the same period last year.
The six largest agencies have published details for more than 50 ICT items in their 2008-09 procurement plans, and more than one third (18 projects) are expected to go-to-market by September 2008.
