IBM likely to get about half GSN value

Contracts are yet to be finalised

IBM is expected to get around half the work on the core Government Shared Network (GSN) by value, if it is finally selected, but contracts are yet to be finalised and all estimates are provisional, the State Services Commission says. IBM is at this stage only a “preferred supplier”, Commission spokesman Jason Ryan says.

The Request for Proposal divided the GSN project into 18 sub-projects, and some of these had still not been awarded, even provisionally, as at last week, Ryan says.

“The GSN Project is still working through procurement options for supply categories that are not on the critical path for the launch of the core GSN. These include WAN, IP Telephony and PSTN. There are a number of procurement models that are available to the Commission.”
