The Treasury has put out a tender for an HR e-recruitment system to replace its current five-year-old one, and is willing to shell out up to AU$220,000 for the right product.
The department wants a system to manage its annual graduate campaigns, bi-annual bulk round recruitment, job-specific recruitment exercises, non-ongoing employment and general employment registers.
Aside from handling advertising vacancies and managing applications electronically, the system will generate correspondence, track trends over time across recruitment exercises and carry out reporting.
The system will need to interface with existing Treasury systems including the Aurion HR system and SAP Financials, transferring details of successful applicants to employee records and tracking the costs of recruitment, including advertising, interviewing, relocation and airfares.
Features required include a calendar to allow applicants shortlisted for interview to be e-mailed and invited to self-select a time and day from a pre-defined interview calendar.
The Treasury wants the system to go live by 1 July. The contract also covers maintenance until 2011.
Last week the Treasury also published a list of department contracts worth at least AU$100,000 which were ongoing at 31 December 2007 or were entered into last year.
The contracts begun last year topped AU$2.5 million, and included agreements such as AU$120,888 to SAP for the provision of SAP maintenance services, AU$133,870 to Gartner for advisory services and over AU$1 million to a range of companies for IT architecture development and project support, as well as legal aid for the Standard Business Reporting Management Group.
The largest contract is an ongoing agreement with Optus for telecommunications services, facilities management services, teleconferencing and cable services, totalling AU$6 million for the period starting November 2005 to January 2012.
