IPART is a NSW government agency. We are an independent pricing regulator for water, public transport, local government, as well as the licence administrator of water, electricity and gas and the scheme administrator and regulator for the Energy Savings Scheme.
IPART wish to procure a Platform as a Service (PaaS) and additional ICT services to replace a set of current IT systems and services in place and in operation.
We are to source a provider through a two-stage approach: an open tender Expression of Interest (EOI) followed by a Request for Proposal (RFP) to the providers on the government ICT Services scheme.
The seeking of expressions of interest (EOI) is the first stage of a multi-stage tender process to enter into a contractual relationship with one or more suppliers for the provision of Goods/Services described in the Statement of Requirement.
