WA govt hits go on $52m network infrastructure panel

Twelve vendors to share the pie.

Twelve vendors will have to opportunity to secure a slice of $52 million in WA government expenditure over three years as the first batch of members are added to the state's mandatory network infrastructure panel.

The whole-of-government panel will cover the procurement of end-to-end network solutions, equipment and IP telephony products, plus a range of installation and decommissioning services.

The initial contract period will run until October 2016, with options to extend to 2018.

Big names dominate the list of pre-qualified vendors - IBM, Fujitsu, Dell and HP all scored a spot. UK vendor BT Global Services has strengthened its foothold in the state by winning a panel spot, which follows its big win as the primary IT contractor for the $2 billion Fiona Stanley Hospital.

A number of WA-based companies also made the cut, including Amcom, R-Group and Empired.

The appointment appears to have already paid off for Empired, which has just secured a $50 million infrastructure outsourcing deal with Main Roads Western Australia that will see it serving the department's needs out to 2018.

The full list of panel members includes:

  1. IBM
  2. Alphawest
  3. Amcom L7 Solutions
  4. NEC Australia
  5. Hewlett-Packard
  6. BT Australasia
  7. Data#3
  8. Dell
  9. Dimension Data
  10. Fujitsu
  11. Empired
  12. R Group International
