Under the 12-month agreement, BidEnergy, which is currently a prequalified supplier on the NSW Government’s Performance and Management Services Scheme, will deploy its platform to automatically capture invoices for all of the NSW Government’s small gas accounts, and provide monthly reporting to NSW Procurement on invoice issues and cost reduction opportunities.
The agreement will see the ASX-listed BidEnergy (ASX:BID) start work on the contract on 1 January and follows the company’s review of a sample of small gas sites, and business case development.
BidEnergy managing director Stuart Allinson said, "Being aligned with governments is a big story globally for BidEnergy”.
"Government is a key target area for growth for us - so absolutely we will be waiting to take on other contracts in that field.
"We will capture all of NSW government's small gas invoices - thousands of separate accounts, analysing them on the fly and providing a monthly report to Procurement NSW on errors and opportunities to reduce costs.
"This will also open the door to the possibility of providing a broader range of services to individual agencies (but noting this would be by separate agreement, and not promoted by PNSW).
“Amazon Web Services will be pleased because we use AWS and this is consistent with a Cloud First purchasing strategy that is being adopted by many governments, including NSW.”
