Accreditation for ICT suppliers
The Government Information Technology Contracting (GITC) Framework will soon be replaced by a new contracting framework.
To find out more, email ICTmodernisation@dsiti.qld.gov.au to receive the latest updates.
Read more about the new framework and the progress of the GITC refresh.
More information will be published when the framework is ready for use. Until then, continue to follow the advice below.
If you are an information and communications technology (ICT) supplier and want to sell to the Queensland Government through the Government Information Technology Contracting (GITC) Framework you must:
- hold industry accreditation (QAssure certification)
- be accredited under GITC.
To find out more information about your existing Head Agreement and Schedule A2(A), please contact the GITC office at email@example.com.
Apply for industry accreditation
QAssure accreditation means that you have independent assurance that your ICT business is sound.
Participating in QAssure means your business will undergo a financial and insurance review process. If you are certified, you will receive a unique number to indicate you are qualified as a goods and services provider.
One of the benefits of QAssure accreditation is that it makes you visible to government buyers who are searching for accredited suppliers during early market engagement. Agencies also use the QAssure website to search for small-to-medium enterprises (SMEs) as part of the ICT SME participation scheme.
Apply for GITC accreditation
GITC accreditation is an agreement by suppliers to use the GITC Framework terms and conditions. This process is managed by the Department of Science, Information Technology and Innovation.
You can request GITC accreditation during the last step of the QAssure accreditation process.
As soon as you have obtained QAssure accreditation, we will be advised and send you a deed of agreement, which you will need to sign and return to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Alternatively, if you already hold QAssure accreditation, log in to QAssure and you will find an additional ability to apply for GITC accreditation.
The following documents will help you learn about the GITC Framework:
- The GITC user guide (part 5) provides advice for using the GITC Framework.
- The contract authority provisions (part 1) are a standard set of contractual terms and conditions, which need to be agreed to before you deal with government.
- The customer contract provisions (part 2) form the core of GITC contracts and are automatically activated when parties execute a customer contract.
- The customer contract module orders (part 3) and customer contract modules - terms and conditions (part 3) both contain 14 modules, which address particular transaction types and must be read in conjunction with the customer contract provisions.
- The customer contract schedules (part 4) are a collection of optional documents and templates that may be required in particular contractual circumstances.
