Total Systems is seeking to engage or partner with a consultancy or individual to provide telecom benchmark reporting to the BC Government

The BC Government Telecommunications Office (TO) leverages and coordinates the aggregated spending power of the Telecommunications Services Master Agreement entities and uses the best in class contract and vendor management to realize value across the public sector and for the citizens of British Columbia. The entities include Core Government, School Districts, the Health Authorities and a number of larger Crown Corporations.

The intent of this Project is to secure Telecom Future Discount Curve Estimates for a six-year period commencing July 2021 for the quantity of data, voice and cellular services consumed by the entities. There are two parts to this Project:

  • Uploading one month of voice, data and cellular service consumption data from electronic invoices/reports and mining those documents to create service consumption tables by major service type within the voice, data and cellular service categories. For clarity, this would be the same initial process undertaken when performing a telecom benchmark study.
  • Taking the service consumption tables created in part 1 and using a combination of contractor-provided historical pricing data and contractor-provided industry expertise to generate six-year Telecom Future Discount Curve Estimates by major service type that includes: voice, data and cellular service categories.

The selected proponent will work closely with the TO during the term of the contract and have access to the service descriptions and pricing electronic invoices/reports for a month within the last two years and to key internal technical and business stakeholders as required.
