Networking Tasmania II and other Whole-of-Government Common Use Contracts
Subsection eight of the Treasurer's Instruction 1112 Common Use / Whole-of-government contracts and other arrangements: goods and services mandates that agencies must use the Networking Tasmania II (NT II) whole-of-government contract, established by the Department of Premier and Cabinet (DPAC), to obtain data communications, Internet and related services, including managed network, connection, filtering and Government directory services.
TMD has responsibility for the management and facilitation of this contract and further information about specific services covered by the NTII contract is available on the TMD website at www.tmd.tas.gov.au.
Subsection nine of the TI 1112 mandates that agencies are required to use the integrated communications services and arrangements provided by TMD, DPAC, including fixed and mobile voice and data carriage, interconnecting service gateways, telephony, desktop videoconferencing, instant messaging and related end user devices.
TMD has arrangements in place for the supply of all goods and services listed as forming part of the integrated communications services. Depending on the component, TMD may provide the goods or services, establish agreements under which the goods or services may be purchased, or establish technical standards relating to the goods or services. If an agency has a niche requirement, for example in relation to security or interconnection with a system maintained by another jurisdiction or third party, TMD can assist the agency to meet that requirement while using the Government’s integrated communications services and arrangements.
TMD has also established an optional whole-of-government panel for the supply of active networking equipment and associated services.
Information in relation to relevant arrangements established by TMD can be obtained from the TMD website.
