Information Technology Services 50 Advanced Communications Strategy Voice, data and internet services have been provided by a SingTEL Optus led consortium, which commenced under contract, 1 June 2000 for a period of five years with an option to extend a further three years. To assess the market in regards to value and currency of technology offerings for this contract, a request for information was released to industry in February 2004. As a result, the decision was made not to take up the three year extension. Consequently, a project team will construct a request for tender document that will be released to the market in the first week of October 2004. The aim is to have new contractual arrangements in place by 1 July 2005. Graph shows the contract value for each year over the past four years. The expenditure on voice and data services continues to grow at around 3% - 4% per annum. This is mainly due to the increasing data and Internet services demands across all agencies. Desktop/LAN Services and Helpdesk Services A CSC Australia led consortium, through a five year contract that commenced 1 July 2001, provides the desktop/LAN services and helpdesk. In order to place the Government in a good position to approach the marketplace in the second quarter of 2005, research and documentation of Desktop/LAN requirements will commence early 2004/2005. The graph shows expenditure against the contract and the average number of workstations for each year for the last three years. The average number of workstations continues to rise for each year volume up on previous year. The average workstation cost per annum is down by 3% on the first year of contract operation. Within the contract there is a programmed year on year reduction on unit rates for subsequent years. 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 2000/01 2001/02 2002/03 2003/04 co nt ra ct v al ue ($ M ) ACS mandated agency spend 35 36 37 38 39 40 2001/02 2002/03 2003/04 co nt ra ct v al ue ($ M ) 9.1 9.2 9.3 9.4 9.5 av g w or k st at io n vo lu m e (0 00 s) Value of Desktop/LAN contract Average Workstation Volume
