Access to the eServices register is through the eServices register gateway
The gateway has extensive training information.
In August 2012, based on the recommendation of the eServices Working Party, the Assistant Treasurer announced that the Victorian Government would move to a register model for the management of its procurement of ICT services.
The Victorian government through the Department of State Development, Business and Innovation launched the eServices Register on 1 July 2013.
Use of the eServices Register to procure ICT professional services is mandatory for all the inner budget departments and agencies covered by the VGPB. It is available for use by all other government agencies including Local government.
The eServices Register promotes more efficient delivery of ICT services to the Victorian Government. The eServices Register simplifies the process of bidding for government work for suppliers while allowing the government to make more informed purchasing decisions from a greater range of suppliers.
The eServices Register contributes towards one of the objectives identified in the Victorian Government ICT Strategy 2013 - 2014 by seeking to make the procurement process for ICT services more efficient – both for buyers and suppliers.
The eServices Register represents a step change to procuring ICT services in government:
- The process to procure ICT services will occur through an electronic marketplace, using a tool (the Ariba network) configured to implement the eServices register, accessible through the Government’s Procurement Portal.
- Purchase orders will be issued through departmental/agency financial systems as is currently the case. In the longer term it is expected that automatic links to financial systems will be developed.
- Interim arrangements will apply for departments who have not transitioned under procurement reform.
- A gateway web site has been established containing extensive help information.
The eServices register will operate under a policy environment set by both the Victorian Government ICT strategy and the VGPB procurement reform across government departments:
- The Victorian Government ICT Strategy was released on 12 February 2013. To continue improving ICT in the Victorian Government, the Strategy has been updated for the years 2014 and 2015.
- The Procurement Reform Program.
