The Australian Taxation Office has announced plans to buy additional managed IT services.
ATO chief information officer Ramez Katf said the organisation plans to follow 2020’s six managed network services contracts with contracts for the supply of centralized computing, end-user technology, and enterprise service management centre services.
The plan is to sound out the market in 2021, and execute and implement the contracts in 2023.
“This is a reshape of how we get these services into the organisation. The technology ecosystem continues to evolve, and our outsourcing model needs to adapt and become future-ready,” said Katf.
The ATO plans to issue at least one request for information for these services in June 2021.
