The ChallengeThe Department of State Growth operates in a largely outsourced environment and spent over 2 years sourcing a complete agency solution to manage its road construction and maintenance, professional services, bus services and other miscellaneous contracts with various suppliers.
Department of State Growth required a solution that could support their environment of;
- Over 700 contracts
- Annual contract value of $200 million
- Diverse range of agreements; from small contracts with suppliers such as stationers, to large road works contracts
The SolutionOpen Windows provided a flexible system to support off-site workers access via wireless laptops and web browsers and for the majority of employees that work out of the ‘traditional’ office. The Tasmanian Department of State Growth went to tender for a Contract Lifecycle Management solution, Open Windows was pleased to deliver a successful bid to implement Open Windows CONTRACTS.
The ResultsThe Open Windows contract management solution enabled the Department of State Growth to maintain a single repository for all contracts, providing easy access to key contract stakeholders across the organisation and ensuring the reliability of the contract data.
