We work with both agencies and the ICT industry to facilitate government ICT procurement.
The Queensland Government Business and Industry Portal can help you understand government procurement and how you can best work with our agencies.
When selling ICT products and services to the government you should consider:
- holding QAssure industry certification and being accredited under the Government Information Technology Contracting (GITC) Framework
- you may not require GITC accreditation for contracts up to $1 million, however QAssure certification is preferred
- using our ICT tendering support services to improve your chances of winning tenders
- finding out about how we work with small-to-medium sized ICT firms in our small-to-medium enterprise (SME) ICT participation scheme policy
- finding out about future procurement plans at our regular Partners in Technology (PIT) briefing sessions
- attending relevant Queensland Government seminars and events including tendering workshops
- registering with the QTenders website to be alerted when ICT tenders are released
- staying in touch with us by subscribing to our ICT in focus e-newsletter
- seeking involvement in our whole-of-government ICT panel arrangements
- finding out about other general procurement information including the Queensland Procurement Policy from the Department of Housing and Public Works website
- finding out about our ICT Industry Engagement Action Plan
