The Department of Finance is inviting organisations to submit Applications for Inclusion to join the DCaaS Multi Use List (MUL). The MUL will be open to Financial Management and Accountability Act 1997 (FMA Act) agencies and Commonwealth Authorities and Companies Act 1997 (CAC Act) agencies, as well as Australian state and territory governments and other Commonwealth bodies.
The purpose of the DCaaS MUL is to create a method of supplying Cloud and Cloud-Like services to agencies. Cloud services are those services that conform to the Cloud Computing Strategic Direction Paper definitions of Cloud Computing. This can be accessed through: http://www.finance.gov.au/files/2013/04/final-_cloud_computing_strategy_version_1.1.pdf
The three basic types of cloud service offerings will be available through the MUL. These are: Software as a Service; Platform as a Service; and Infrastructure as a Service as defined by the Cloud Computing Strategic Direction Paper.
Further information, including instructions on how to submit applications, is available in Part 1 of the Application For Inclusion (AFI) documentation.
After the establishment of the DCaaS MUL, potential suppliers may submit AFIs to email@example.com at any time. However, assessment cut-off dates will apply. AFIs received after a cut-off date will be evaluated during the next round of assessments. Assessment cut off dates will be published to the Finance website.
The cut off date for the initial round of assessments is 30 August 2012. Any addenda will be published through Austender.
