12 September 2022 - New print technology and associated services contract launched
The contract covers print equipment, print-related software, sector specific products like 3D printers, wide and large format printers and scanners; and related consultancy and provider-enabled services, and maintenance and servicing.
Participating agencies and schools must purchase these products and services from panel suppliers.
Participating agencies and schools are encouraged to purchase the following products and services from panel suppliers but are not required to.
Some products and services are out of scope as they are covered by alternative contracts (see contract register) or because of the specialist nature of the products and services.
* Paper and other stationery requirements are available under the AoG office supplies agreement.
This contract uses Statements of Work as the contracting form between participating agencies/schools and providers.
Agencies/schools may select from a range of different pricing options to source their printing equipment:
All pricing options also have capped service and maintenance rates, which are charged per copy and include the maintenance of devices and provision of all consumables.
The term of any Statement of Work shall be sixty (60) calendar months, unless the AoG Print team approves a different term in writing. This excludes Statements of Work that are based on a short term rental pricing model.
Statements of Work made under the previous print technology and associated services (PTAS) agreement (which expired on 10 September 2022) continue under the current PTAS agreement.
Agencies/schools which participate in the print technology and associated services (PTAS) contract don't need to go through a full procurement process of their own, which saves time, effort and cost.
Agencies/schools should consider their overall print requirements as well as price. Software solutions and other value adding category products and services may support these requirements to provide a total solution for an agency/school.
Considerations should include:
Additional ways to save money include:
The PTAS contract provides great terms and means you will save money. We estimate that participating agencies and schools will save on average over 8%.
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.
For this contract, the administration fee is 1.5% of the total spend.
Providers collect the administration fee and pass it on to MBIE - agencies/schools do not need to make any payments to MBIE.
