Description

SCM0007 is open to applications from recruitment organisations for the provision of contingent labour to NSW Government and eligible buyers.

Scope

SCM0007 Contingent Workforce Prequalification Scheme (Scheme) is open to applications at any time from recruitment organisations for the provision of contingent labour to NSW Government (NSWG) and other eligible customers.  This Scheme is managed by NSW Procurement and leverages NSWG’s buying power whilst opening up opportunities to small and medium enterprises, regional and boutique suppliers.

The objective of this Scheme is to provide a quality contingent workforce that is effectively and efficiently controlled and co-ordinated across NSWG. This Scheme will see the implementation of systems and processes to manage appropriate buying behaviour aligned to NSWG workforce planning objectives and will capture information associated with NSWG’s use of contingent workforce to reduce cost and improve candidate quality.

Under the Contractor Central operating model, a panel of Managed Services Providers (MSPs) source and manage contingent workers from prequalified suppliers on this Scheme.  MSPs work with prequalified suppliers in a vendor-neutral arrangement and transact only via the whole-of-government Vendor Management Systems being Beeline and SAP Fieldglass.

This Scheme will continually evolve to meet the needs of all stakeholders and brings the following benefits to buyers and suppliers:

  1. Opening up of categories – allowing suppliers to nominate the categories they have demonstrated their capability and providing hiring managers with more choice of suppliers
  2. Supplier mark-up has been standardised allowing hiring managers to focus on candidate quality instead of cost
  3. Contingent to Permanent conversion fee is a sliding scale over the initial 12 month period
  4. Simplifying procurement practice and
  5. Removes unnecessary red tape which negatively impacts on buyers and suppliers.

This Scheme also aims to reduce off contract spend and improve compliance by allowing all suppliers who meet the Scheme Conditions to do business with NSWG agencies and eligible customers.

Over the life of the Scheme there will be the flexibility to add more specialised role types when required.  The Scheme will continue to utilise categories for ease of searching and reporting. Suppliers will be able to apply for any and/or all categories and will be able to update their areas of capability in a simple manner.

If you require information about this Scheme, please visit https://buy.nsw.gov.au/schemes/contingent-workforce-scheme or reach out to the Scheme Contact Person.
