RFT Type Scheme Invitation
Description

The Prequalification Scheme: Contingent Workforce is a new operating model for government. This model will transform the mechanism by which contingent labour is sourced, managed and reported on within NSW Government; with a complement of four sub-category projects:

  1. Vendor Management System (VMS) - Single vendor neutral recruitment technology provider
  2. Managed Service Provider (MSP) - Panel of neutral providers
  3. Payroll processing - Panel of dedicated providers of payroll functions 
  4. Prequalification scheme of recruitment suppliers to replace the existing contingent workforce contract (C100).

This prequalification scheme replaces Contingent Workforce Contract 100 and will be used to access the market for contingent labour.  This Scheme will be managed by NSW Procurement and will leverage government buying power whilst opening up opportunities to small and medium enterprises, regional and boutique suppliers.

The objective of this Scheme is to provide a quality contingent workforce that is effectively and efficiently controlled and co-ordinated across government.  This Scheme will see the implementation of systems and processes to manage appropriate buying behaviour aligned to Government Workforce Planning objectives and will capture information associated with NSW Government’s use of contingent workforce to reduce cost and improve candidate quality.

 

This Scheme will evolve to continue to meet the needs of all stakeholders and brings the following benefits to NSW Government and suppliers:

1.       Opening up of categories – allowing suppliers to nominate the categories they have demonstrated their capability and providing hiring managers with more choice of suppliers

2.       Supplier mark-up has been standardised allowing hiring managers to focus on candidate quality instead of cost

3.       Temp to Perm conversion fee is a sliding scale over the initial 12 month period

4.       Simplifying procurement practice and

5.       Removes unnecessary red tape which negatively impacts on buyers and suppliers.

 

The NSW Government has taken the decision to convert a number of closed panel contracts to pre-qualification schemes while being respectful of associated risk and preservation of its market leverage.

This Scheme also aims to reduce off contract spend and improve compliance by allowing all suppliers who meet the scheme conditions to do business with government agencies.

The Scheme will continue to utilise categories for ease of searching and reporting. Over the life of the Scheme there will the flexibility to add more specialised role types as and when required. Prequalified suppliers will be able to apply for any and/or all categories and will be able to update their areas of capability in a simple manner.

Description

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.
