Notice Description

  Project: tender_7625 - Data Centre Network Products and Services

Detailed Description

nfrastructure Technology Services (ITS) is an Infrastructure Shared Services Organization and providing infrastructure services to of all Ontario Public Service (OPS) Ministries. We also partner with the Information & Information Technology (I&IT) clusters to create services and improve delivery to the public.

Infrastructure Technology Services received approval to issue an open, competitive RFB to establish a Vendor of Record (VOR) for the acquisition of Data Centre Network (DCN) hardware, software, associated services, and on-going support and maintenance.

The total estimated value is $38M over a term of up to six years (three-year initial term with three one-year extension options).

Scope of Work

ITS is a shared services organization that manages and delivers infrastructure products and services and the business need will provide Data Centre Network with the agility required to supply the goods and services that meet evolving OPS applications and IT infrastructure and provide access to the best sources of products and services.

The deliverables for the Data Centre Network (DCN) have been broken down into technology-based streams that align with product or services functionality and the market.

Within each stream the RFB will identify, where applicable, product families versus individual products. A product family is a group of related products from a single manufacturer that form a common product platform. The use of product families will ensure that the OPS can always procure the latest models.
