Organizations under the mandate of the IGG, public and non-public services, the 20 district health agencies and 7 Crown institutions must stick to the framework of the decision to use a cloud service. In October 2015, the New Zealand government approved a revised purely IT strategy that confirmed its “Cloud First” policy on the use of information technology in the public sector. The revised strategy maintains the Cloud Computing Risk and Assurance Framework that was developed and implemented under the supervision of NZ Government`s Chief Information Officer (GCIO). The SAP Cloud Framework Agreement uses the New Zealand government as a single client and simplifies contract processes that save your agency time and resources. “SAP sees increased demand for our solutions and services for key New Zealand initiatives, so this agreement will enable agencies to benefit from operational efficiency and become smart agencies that will be supported in the cloud,” said Nick Quin, Director, Public Sector, SAP New Zealand. The Cloud Framework Agreement has been concluded between SAP and the IAD and covers all local and centralized authorities in NZ. In accordance with the agreement, all agencies are created as a single customer. Fast supply, flexibility, simplicity and optimized implementation are the main advantages of a government agreement. Amazon Web Services Cloud Framework Agreement (AWS) is a fully government-owned agreement that covers existing and new licenses for the AWS Cloud Services catalog. Thanks to the agreement between SAP and the Department of Internal Affairs (IAD), SAP now provides its cloud portfolio and services on standardized terms for SAP`s erp business suite, Human Capital Management and Payroll, external human resources management, platform and data management, citizen experience and engagement, supply chain and supply, innovation and analytics platform.
Payroll Services provides payroll and payroll services to government agencies in the areas of enterprise software, management/out-sourcing and consulting services, as well as professional services. The agreement will set up government authorities as a single client, allow for a simpler experience, economies of scale, flexibility and faster implementation of projects. In return, New Zealand has not made any additional commitments within the CPTPP, beyond the commitments already made in other agreements, including the World Trade Organization (GPA) public procurement agreement. In other words, New Zealand will extend the commitments that already exist for many other countries to a number of contracting parties to the CPTPP.
