The Victorian Government has expanded its eServices panel in a move designed to provide more opportunities for local ICT companies and greater competition in the provision of ICT services to government.
The state's Minister for Technology, Gordon Rich-Phillips, said today the panel now has an additional 180 suppliers across the 18 service categories, taking the total panel size to 368.
'It is the largest panel since its inception. We understand the importance of improving this access as government can be an important market for our local ICT industry,' the minister said.
