The Department of Internal Affairs (the Department) has developed a Minimum Viable Product (MVP) of a Marketplace for cloud services for use by Government Agencies and public cloud services providers.
The Marketplace is a vital step in the digital transformation of government ICT procurement. The MVP release of the Marketplace is now in place and requires testing by government agencies and suppliers to validate it works as intended.
The Department is inviting Suppliers of public cloud services to participate in the Beta testing phase of the New Zealand Government’s Marketplace for public cloud services.
We are seeking up to 30 Suppliers who provide public cloud services, representing a range of organisational types and sizes, to undertake the full application and on-boarding process of the Marketplace. These suppliers will validate the business processes and Marketplace functions and advise the Department on the user experience prior to the full launch of the Marketplace.
Applications are open until 4 April 2018 unless fully subscribed earlier.
Note: Deadline may be extended at the Departments discretion – this will be communicated through GETS and on www.digital.govt.nz/marketplace
How to apply:
1. Read the requirements to confirm that you qualify.
2. Complete the enclosed Response form and submit it to us electronically, at your earliest opportunity.
