- Contractor Services (body shopping and short term ICT Consultancy under the direction, control and supervision of the buyer)

Which Government buyers can use it?
The publication of these Modules enables NSW Government buyers: including NSW Departments, Agencies, Hospitals, State owned Corporations, Local Government and Universities (to name but a few of the 10,000s of 'NSW government entities' that are entitled to use the Procure IT v3.0 contract), to purchase this range of services.
And publication was just in time, as the extension of one of the NSW Government's major Services panels, ITS 2020, has just occurred and this panel relied on the publication of these Modules in order to be effective. ITS 2020 approved supplier panel comprises of a diverse range of ICT services, in over 30 categories and 130 sub categories.
There are a couple of legal issues with one of the Modules, Training Services, in that this Module is not referred to in the main Parts of Procure IT v3.0, so amendments will be needed on each order to ensure that the Training Services are subject to the appropriate 'boiler plate' terms and conditions; but overall these Modules represent a significant improvement over the previous versions of Procure IT.
Where can I find the version of Procure IT version 3.0
