ICT Tender Moratorium and QTenders support over Christmas/New Year period
QTenders will be offline for maintenance during the Christmas Period from 24 December to 2 January 2022.
Due to the Christmas break, there will be no QTenders support available from the Queensland Government Procurement Business Services Unit (BSU) from 3pm on the 24th of December 2021 through to the 4th of January 2022.
Additionally, the Queensland government has a moratorium on ICT tenders from Monday the 13th of December 2021 through to Friday the 14th of January 2022.
The Qld government is very aware that responding to tenders over the Festive season can be problematic for suppliers, so with this in mind, there will be a moratorium for ICT tenders that will extend from Monday the 13th of December 2021, through to Friday the 14th of January.
Whilst it is expected that most ICT procurement activity can accommodate this moratorium, it is recognised that there may be emergent needs or circumstances that require exception to this general rule.

Agency Tender Managers - Is your Tender Closing at 5pm?
Consider closing your tenders at 10am on Monday morning. Tenders closing at 5pm on a Friday, will not have any QTenders support after 5pm if offerors experience any problems uploading their offers. Generally, no tender evaluations take place over the weekend.
Extending the closing time to Monday morning allows the offerors more time to respond if required and allows time to remedy any operational problems - without impacting the agency evaluations. It also ensures agencies receive the most complete offers, while still allowing the QTenders’ team time to deal with any last-minute issues.
