Govt panel to overseas M/R products

6:57 am on 13 November 2012

Internal Affairs Minister Chris Tremain has announced the establishment of a new government IT panel to purchase Microsoft products.

a syndicated services panel has been set up to order and administer Microsoft licences, cutting the cost of purchasing licences, remove duplication and streamlining the procurement process.

Currently, agencies needing to purchase Microsoft services deal directly with a range of large account resellers, which creates inconsistencies in service and the fees.

The service providers on the syndicated panel are Datacom, Dimension Data, Fujitsu, Gen-i and Insight.
