SCM0020: Prequalification Scheme: ICT Services


The NSW Government ICT Services Scheme is the new model for delivering ICT services to NSW Government. These new arrangements will ensure NSW government agencies can find and procure the goods and services that best meet their needs, and makes it easier for industry to do business with government.

The Scheme arose from extensive consultation about how government and industry can make the most of procurement opportunities.

The Scheme features include:

  • a new straightforward online application for suppliers removes lengthy and expensive tender processes.
  • an “always open” policy, so new suppliers can register for inclusion on the Scheme at any time, giving agencies continual access to new suppliers and emerging technologies.
  • streamlined ICT service categories aligned to the ICT Strategy, enabling suppliers to align their offerings and maximise opportunities to provide services to government.
  • introduction of two supplier lists: The Registered Supplier List for low risk contracts valued up to $150,000; and the Advanced Registered Supplier List for high risk contracts or contracts valued over $150,000.  Suppliers can apply for inclusion on one or both of these lists, depending on their capacity and capability.
  • a new, simple short-form contract for the low risk low value category of work provides opportunities for small to medium businesses. It includes simplified terms and lower insurance requirements, reducing the cost of doing business with government.
