Talis, in partnership with Mercury Project Solutions, was engaged via a Common Usage Agreement framework to document the user requirements and develop an implementation plan for the Department of Education’s Asset Management Information System (AMIS), specifically relating to the Department’s buildings and facilities asset portfolio. In delivering the project, Mercury partnered with Talis to provide key technical inputs.
A large number of user requirements workshops and smaller 1-on-1 interviews were held capturing the functional and non-functional user requirements for AMIS. An implementation plan was then developed which considered two options: implementation via the Department of Treasury’s Building Management and Works (BMW) Department as a whole of government initiative or, as an alternative, the implementation by the Department of Education independent of BMW.
The primary outcome of the project was to provide key input into the Department’s RFT processes, documenting requirements to a level appropriate to allow vendors to meaningfully respond.
