Finsbury Green wins NSW Government print tender
The Department of Education and Communities (DEC) has become the first NSW government super agency to appoint a print manager, after Finsbury Green leveraged its Victorian Government print management model to secure the $15 million three-year contract.
Like the deal in Victoria, Finsbury Green itself is barred from producing any of the Government print work. Another similarity between the two state contracts is an emphasis on the group’s online procurement application, Sourceit as the reason for the win. The platform allows Government print buyers to engage directly with suppliers throughout the request for quotation process and to play an active role in supplier selection and decision making.
Peter Orel, CEO of Finsbury Green, said the company had to win two tender processes to land the education deal. It first needed to get onto the panel of Government print managers before it could secure the DEC tender, which has already started.
“Our solution is a great example of the flexibility, independence and value that Finsbury Green can deliver to DEC, which is achieved by consolidating and streamlining their print related processes, and at the same time allowing complete transparency to both client and supplier throughout the print procurement process.
“If we weren’t running the Victorian government print contract, we wouldn’t have won the DEC tender in NSW,” said Orel (pictured).
Finsbury Green encourages printing companies that wish to discuss supply opportunities to make contact as soon as possible.
