Internal Affairs brings in HPE for govt transformation

01 Feb 17

HPE has entered into a partnership with the Department of Internal Affairs, as the government undergoes its digital transformation.

The initial three year deal with the DIA will be a pan-government agreement, and builds on the previous pan-government arrangements the department has negotiated with other global ICT suppliers.

“This agreement aligns with our strategy of New Zealand Government acting as a single customer and will support government agencies in embracing the move to the cloud,” explains Tim Occleshaw, Government chief technology officer.

“This system-wide approach is key to government’s digital services transformation as part of the shift to a digital economy and society,” he says.

Occleshaw says the agreement will result in substantial savings across the public sector over its initial three-year term, as well as saving time and resources through a simplified procurement process. 

It also means all public sector agencies are able to access pricing that reflects the purchasing power of New Zealand government, as well as products that are structured in a manner that aligns with how government wants to consume ICT services, he explains.

“More widely this agreement presents an exciting and important opportunity for New Zealand,” says Occleshaw.

“It demonstrates the collaboration and collective strength that agency chief executives aspired to when we developed the Government ICT Strategy.

“Our vision is to create a single, coherent government ICT system that enables a radical transformation of public services,” he explains.

“Our agreement with HPE is another step towards achieving this goal.”
