OCIO Information Session

Thursday, August 16, 2018

Tuesday, February 7th 2017 from 2-4PM
Fairfield Inn and Suites, Kenmount Road

* Please note that due to demand, we have had to move this session to a larger venue. It will now be hosted in the O'Regan Ballroom at the Fairfield Inn and Suites. 


Why attend?

This session will provide you with an overview of the Office of the Chief Information Officer (OCIO) and the challenges it faces regarding ever increasing technology demands. It will also provide a perspective on how enhanced IT solutions are needed to support many of the Actions contained in the Premier's vision document,The Way Forward. This session is the first step in delivering on Action 1.14: "Increase the Number of Vendors Completing Government IT Work" as the OCIO is announcing implementation of  a Managed Service Provider approach for IT work opportunities beginning on April 1.

What does this mean?

The adoption of this new model will allow more companies to bid on Government IT work, thereby increasing competition and choice of vendor. Vendors wishing to compete for Q1 (April 2017) OCIO IT professional services opportunities must register with Flextrack, the Managed Service Provider of record, by mid-February. Representatives from Flextrack will be present at this session that will introduce the company, detail how the new model will work and will provide everything that you need to know to register and participate.
