Key changes from version 3.1 to version 3.2

Procure IT version 3.2 replaced version 3.1 on 1 September 2017. Changes address:

  • issues raised by agencies and industry
  • legislative and NSW Government policy changes
  • minor drafting issues.

Changes to the head agreement, customer contract, dictionary and schedules include revised provisions on:

  • customer data
  • security
  • systems
  • liability (amendments for consistency)
  • escrow
  • audit
  • regulatory compliance (privacy legislation and Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009 NSW)
  • intellectual property rights (scope of licences and open source software).

The modules have been revised to address minor drafting issues and to rebadge Procure IT v.3.0 Modules 13 and 13A, but otherwise remain unchanged.

For more information on key changes, please download the Procure IT v3.2 guidance note (DOC, 156KB).

Procurement Board Direction 2018-02 now allows variations to Procure IT v.3.2 in certain circumstances. All other variations and exemptions require approval from the Department of Customer Service.

Transition to version 3.2

Procure IT version 3.2 replaced version 3.1 on 1 September 2017.

Pre-1 September 2017 contracts

All current contracts executed prior to 1 September 2017 will continue on the same terms until expiry, unless and until the supplier and agency vary the contract to include Procure IT v.3.2 terms and conditions.

If a pre-1 September 2017 contract is extended or “renewed” in accordance with its terms after 1 September 2017, the contract continues on the same Procure IT v.3.1 (or earlier) terms unless the supplier and agency agree in writing otherwise.

Approval from the Department of Customer Service is required to vary a Procure IT v.3.1 (or earlier Procure IT version) contract so as to extend its terms (rather than moving to a Procure IT v.3.2 contract) where there are no remaining options to extend.  

Telecommunication services

For the procurement of telecommunication services, please refer to Procurement Board Direction 2014-03 and the requirement of the PTS Telecommunications Working Group endorsement process prior to entering into arrangements.
