The Expression of Interest is to seek from the market whether a suitably qualified managed service partner exists to deliver end-to-end Infrastructure & Operations Services and/ or Project Delivery Services for our Information Communication & Technology (ICT) function.
We are exploring the market to hear from proponents regarding their capabilities and how they have delivered value to clients like ourselves. How a managed service partner would transition us from our current state to future state should be considered and outlined in your response. We seek that you showcase how you’ve done this for others in the energy sector or similar industry and what benefits you’ve provided.
Our internal driver is to reduce risk, optimise and reduce spend, and enhance business value through delivering the right services in a cost-effective manner without reducing service levels.
Following this initial EOI, if the market presents suitably qualified partners across either or both services areas, we may choose to progress to a down-select and detailed design process with those selected partners. In this process we will look to share more details of the services we have, how we currently work and how we can decide on the services and look to build out the value case for a prospective transition.
Whist our intent is to seek a partner to undertake exclusive Infrastructure & Operations Services, we are open to non-exclusive expressions of interest who address major sections the services requested. We are also expecting non-exclusive managed service partners for Project Delivery Services. In both cases, CS Energy will evaluate the EOI responses and will be free to engage managed services partners to provide the services or part thereof. The proposal submitted by the vendors, complete with all supporting documents, shall become and remain the property of CS Energy.
