Preferred Telco, IT Supplier Announced


For immediate release: 28 November 2006

Ministry of Justice Announces Preferred Telco and IT Services Supplier

The Ministry of Justice today announced the selection of Gen-i as the preferred supplier to enter into final contract negotiations for the supply of telecommunications services and also for supply of information technology support services.

The announcement is the result of parallel tender processes started in December 2005 to select suppliers of telecommunications services and of information technology support services for five years from July 2007.

“The Ministry currently has over a dozen telecommunications and information technology services suppliers, a legacy from the merger of the former Ministry of Justice and the former Department of Courts in 2003,” says Technology and Services General Manager Carol Abernethy.

“We were looking for proven ability to manage our existing services and also be capable of supporting our future technology needs. Gen-i clearly demonstrated they are able to do this and presented the best proposal for each tender.”

The Ministry and Gen-i will now negotiate details of the contracts for the two service areas with a view to finalising the contracts in December 2006. The Ministry expects to complete the transition to Gen-i by June 2007.

See the attached backgrounder for more information on the tender.
