What is the process for considering potential new additions to the DCFSP?
How can requests to be added to the Panel be made?
Any other issues policy around DCFSP to be aware of?

The Data Centre Facilities Supplies Panel (DCFSP) was established in July 2014 through an open tender with an initial term of 5 years and 2 x 1 year options to extend. It provides agencies with a greater degree of flexibility to access data centres in Australia and for greater flexibility in their contracts.

The DCFSP has 17 suppliers with 32 data centres offering sufficient capacity and sites to meet current requirements for the Commonwealth.  Requesting to add sites to the Panel can only be made by existing Panel Contractors.

Further information on the operation of the panel can be found here.
