All-of-Government Talent aquisition services - Version Two – GETS

On 12 September, we paused the RFP to further engage with participating agencies and the recruitment industry to listen to concerns on the proposed new commercial model. We wanted to better understand the impacts of the change on them, what they perceived may be unintended consequences and what improvements they could suggest that would support transparency, consistency, and fair use of taxpayer funds.

The revised RFP reflects this additional feedback. We are proposing to revert to a percentage-based commercial model in this revised RFP, which will also incorporate an annual cap. This is similar to the pricing model in the current generation 2 contract but with revisions, particularly for contractor and temporary roles. This proposed revision has been well received by agencies and industry during our engagement.

The key changes are as follows:

  1. A deliberate move from a transaction focused approach to a value focused approach that enables transparency and consistency and ensures fair use of taxpayer funds
  2. The revised RFP and contract focuses on the value provided to agencies in relation to attracting, selecting, and retaining talent including post-placement care
  3. The commercial model has reverted from a single tendered price model to a percentage model that now includes an annual cap
  4. Inclusion of a conversion fee for temporary staff and contractors to permanent.

The current AoG external recruitment services (ERS) contract expires on 30 September 2023. There are 179 government agencies participating in the ERS contract and in the last financial year spent $142 million on permanent, temporary, and contractor placement types roles in common administration and corporate, and common IT job families. In practice, this represents 41 recruitment agencies in almost continuous interaction with government agencies.
