Features and benefits

The panel of suppliers includes a combination of two manufacturers, three resellers and one retailer. Participating agencies do not need to choose any one supplier for an exclusive relationship - they may purchase any in-scope product from any panel supplier at any time.

The IT Hardware contract offers agencies:

  • significant hard and soft cost-savings in IT hardware related purchases
  • flexibility in purchasing methods with a choice of manufacturers, resellers and a retailer
  • a wide range of products including corporate and non-corporate products
  • discounted prices and certainty of quotation timeframes with each supplier
  • additional bulk and committed supply discounts
  • the ability to lease products if you wish to do so
  • ability to appoint a Third Party Agent (TPA) to purchase through the contract on behalf of an agency
  • supplier specific Value Add Services
  • access to public specials.

Savings and costs

Savings

Agencies who participate in the IT Hardware contract don't need to go through a full procurement process of their own, which saves time, effort and cost.

It is anticipated that savings achieved will average 2% for the larger participating agencies and up to 20% for smaller participating agencies compared with the best prices outside of the contract.

Costs

Most AoG contracts include an administration fee. This fee is a simple, effective and transparent way of recovering the cost of developing, sourcing, implementing and managing AoG contracts.

Rates in this contract include an administration fee of 1.5%.

Suppliers collect the administration fee and pass it on to MBIE - agencies don't need to make any payments to MBIE.
