The Australian Taxation Office will approach the market for three major managed services contracts, as it looks to refresh its IT systems.

The ATO will look for contractors in: centralised computing; ender user technology, and enterprise service management centre.

It plans to issue requests for information (RFIs) for one or more of the above in June for market sounding and analysis.

It will approach the market in 2021 and execute in 2023.

ATO chief information officer Ramez Katf said that the ATO's IT strategic sourcing program successfully delivered six new managed network services contracts in 2020.
