I am pleased to announce the establishment of the Data Centre Facilities Supplies Panel arrangements. The first suppliers have been added to the Data Centre Facilities Supplies Panel, these companies are:

  • Canberra Data Centres Pty Limited,
  • Australian Data Centres;
  • Datapod (Australia) Pty Limited; and
  • NEXTDC Limited.

Further announcements will be made over the coming weeks. This is the latest step in the implementation of the Australian Government Data Centre Strategy 2010-2025. The updated panel augments our existing arrangements and offers agencies a more scalable and flexible method to meet a wide range of requirements. This panel demonstrates a significant move forward in our approach to simplifying and streamlining Government’s procurement of ICT.

Under the new data centre procurement arrangements we will be entering service contracts rather than leases to procure supplies from facilities located in Australia.
