Government—tenders(Question No 1095)

Mr Coe asked the Treasurer, upon notice, on 23 March 2018:

(1) Further to question on notice No 23 of the Standing Committee on Economic Development and Tourism’s inquiry into referred 2016-17 annual and financial reports, why was the software fix for the search function of Tenders ACT Contract Register not rolled out by mid-December.

(2) What date will the software fix for the search function of the Tenders ACT Contract Register be rolled out to the public version.

(3) When are the typical windows of low use for Tenders ACT and when will the next window occur?

(4) What actions have the ACT Government taken to prioritise the roll-out of the software fix to the Tenders ACT Contract Register search function to the public version.

(5) Has the ACT Government set a deadline for a software fix to the Tenders ACT Contract Register search function to be rolled out to the public version; if so, what is the deadline; if not, why not.

Mr Barr: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:

(1) The software fix was not rolled out as previously anticipated in mid-December 2017 due to issues with the required migration of the Tenders ACT system and data to the external hosting environment (this was a precursor to the release of the software that contained the fix to the search function), and some unanticipated tender release and closing activity in the lead up to the December 2017 public service shut down.

(2) The software containing the fix to contract register search issue was successfully released in the public version of Tenders ACT on 28 February 2018.

(3) The quantum of usage of Tenders ACT is in part determined by tender release and closing dates and the nature of open tenders. Traditionally there are relatively fewer tenders closing immediately after public holidays, however, it is difficult to definitively identify future periods of lower use of the system. It should be noted that the Tenders ACT system also holds the publically accessible Contract Register and other information resources that the ACT Government requires to be available.
