As of January 2012, the Optical, Geospatial, Radar, and Elevation Supplies and Services Panel (OGRE) refresh model has been changed and will now occur quarterly. The refresh is advertised on AusTender under Geoscience Australia's Annual Procurement Plan. Companies interested in joining the panel can find the necessary details on AusTender.
Geoscience Australia will be sponsoring a closed conference for OGRE Suppliers and Users at spatial@gov 2012. The session will provide an opportunity for Suppliers to present their capabilities to Australian Government Agencies and for Agencies to ask questions of Suppliers.
Community of Practice
Geoscience Australia is working to establish an OGRE Community of Practice using govdex.
The govdex workspace features a forum for OGRE Users to discuss cooperative procurement and OGRE-related information such as:
- annual reports
- OGRE forms
- supplier information (including past performance metrics)
- an explanation of the procurement process
- a breakdown of the supplies and services available through the OGRE
Members of the OGRE User Advisory and/or Steering committees can also access committee documentation via this workspace.
