Stakeholder Engagement Services for the Development of Questions for the ICT Industry Supply Chain Index
Department of Industry, Innovation and Science | Published December 16, 2015 - Deadline January 19, 2016
The Customer is seeking a service provider (being an entity that can demonstrate that they possess the staff, industry knowledge and experience to deliver the required services) with deep experience in the information communication technology (ICT) sector, and is knowledgeable about the constraints and obstacles hindering small and medium enterprises (SMEs) from accessing and successfully supplying major buyers and providers of ICT.
The ultimate goal is to engage with key buyers and providers of ICT and understand what they look for in a potential (direct or indirect) supplier. The task is not just about the initial engagement and surveying of buyers and providers, but having their endorsement and ownership of the tool’s development.
To complete the project the provider must have established networks, or be able to access key senior personnel within large buyers and providers of ICT. The engagement of associations may be important in accessing these buyers and providers, but it is critical the individual entities are engaged.
The desired output of the procurement will be a set of industry approved and tested questions (including relevant context), indicators and associated weightings, which enable the benchmarking of SME capability and their ability to supply to ICT buyers and providers.
