The Government of Western Australia has signed a Common Use Agreement (CUA) with Amazon Web Services to better access the services of the public cloud provider. On Tenders WA, you can browse agency contracts according to the United Nations Product and Services Code (UNSPSC). LEPSC is a taxonomy of products and services used by government authorities to indicate the product or service their agency wants to obtain. Such agreements provide well-established conditions to reduce financial, legal and reputational risks and achieve savings across the state government. They also contribute to greater transparency in total government spending on goods and services, including cloud services. To apply for a specific Common Use Arrangement (CUA), please contact the contract manager on the AUC page. CUAs use the purchasing power of the government to reduce administrative costs and costs for agencies. As AWS charges directly from customers, the new agreement will allow AV to reduce its direct costs with AWS and unlock funds to cooperate with local partners. CUAs, RBAs and GBAs offer more than just savings from pre-negotiated prices. They also offer efficiency gains such as simple ordering and risk reduction strategies, such as strict due diligence practices in the tendering process.

You have also covered these contracts when it comes to meeting government insurance and insurance requirements. Who buys What and how an annual report on public authorities` goods, services and operating expenses is listed after information on AV tenders, Common Use Arrangements and other expense reports. It is a valuable source of information for businesses and governments. The reports are used by the government to analyze spending patterns and identify opportunities for new common use agreements. Potential suppliers to the government can find useful reports to understand what agencies are buying to market their business to good government buyers. “The introduction of this centralized agreement provides Western Australia`s national and local authorities, as well as other accredited users such as universities, with a consistent approach to purchasing AWS services, without having to negotiate separate contractual terms. The agreement will allow agencies to invest more time and resources to provide services to citizens instead of negotiating contracts,” Iain Rouse, AWS`s public sector director, said in a statement. If you are a supplier who wants to sell to the government, you will find more information about the goods and services delivery guide.

The Register of Persons Who Can Make Purchases on Common Use Arrangements (CUA) lists all authorized users of the CUA. This list helps AUC contract providers identify individuals and entities authorized to access their government missions. The agreement allows all VA authorities and local authorities, as well as other accredited companies such as universities, to use the contractual agreement to access the latest AWS services and functions.
