Public cloud service providers invited for Beta testing of New Zealand Government's Marketplace

Public cloud service providers invited for Beta testing of New Zealand Government's Marketplace

The Department of Internal Affairs (DIA) is inviting
suppliers of public cloud services to participate in the Beta testing phase of
the New Zealand Government’s Marketplace for public cloud services.
DIA is seeking
up to 30 suppliers who provide public cloud services, representing a range of
organisational types and sizes, to go through the full application and
on-boarding process of the Marketplace. These suppliers will validate the
business processes and Marketplace functions and advise the Department on the
user experience prior to the full launch of the Marketplace.
Applications are open until 4 April 2018 unless fully
subscribed earlier.  The closing date may
be extended at DIA’s discretion.
The Marketplace will make it easier, quicker and more
cost-effective for government to access and suppliers to deliver a full range
of digital capabilities. It aims to simplify procurement and security assurance
processes allowing agencies to focus on value and citizen engagement.
DIA has worked closely with the Ministry of Business, Innovation and
Employment 
(MBIE), the government’s functional lead for procurement,  to ensure that the Marketplace is compatible
with the Government
Rules of Sourcing 
.
The intended functions and capabilities of the Marketplace have
been developed through engagement with a government co-design community, with
members from large and small agencies and relevant suppliers.
In addition, DIA evaluated good
practice for similar ICT marketplaces, including pricing, with a global ICT
research firm and engagement with governments of the United Kingdom, Australia,
Singapore and Dubai. Government ICT marketplaces in Chile, Denmark, Slovenia
and USA were also analysed.
Two prototypes were developed with support from large and
small agencies. Supplier experience concepts were developed through engagement
with ICT Industry representatives, including New Zealand owned IT firms and
specialist cloud brokers.
Selection and consumption of marketplace products by
agencies will be via a secondary procurement process. This will reduce the
complexity of procurement, negotiation and management of contracts with
suppliers, significantly reducing the time, cost and effort associated with
individual procurements.
