A Accuracy of Information
a The tender information for the OIC Tender Information Management Service [TIMS]is outsourced from other organisations. b The OIC and its members cannot accept any responsibility for the accuracy of the tender information. These tender details are passed on as received apart from classifying the tender requirement information into a coded analysis structure
a Whilst every effort is made to ensure that the coding structure accurately reflects the tender category, the OIC and its members cannot accept any responsibility for the accuracy of the codes allocated. b These codes are an attempt to classify the tenders and reduce the amount of time required to select an appropriate tender. c The codes are designed to provide management metrics on the tenders to assist with management and resource planning.
a TIMS has been commissioned by the OIC to provide a tender information management service to encourage subscribers to work together to develop integrate Electronic Information Interchange [EII] applications. The service is dependant on other organisations to provide base information on a regular schedule. b Without knowing the business transaction details of the organisations which supply the tender information the Continuity of Service may be interrupt and cannot be guaranteed. c The OIC and its members cannot accept responsibility for Continuity of Service. d The TIMS Management Committee will endeavour to ensure that there are other suppliers of the base tender information to ensure continuity of the tender information service.
a The intention is to provide details of these tenders on Tuesday and Fridays each week. b However the OIC and its members can not take any responsibility for ensuring that these tender details are published every Tuesday and Friday as there are a number of factors beyond the TIMS Management Committee control including: 1 Knowledge of reliability of equipment of base information providers 2 the number of tenders likely to be supplied each update 3 the congestion on the local ISP systems 4 The congestion on the Telstra network
a The terms and conditions of this information service can change without notice. b As the sophistication of providing this information service develops to meet both management and subscriber demands, the method of operation and changes to terms and conditions may occur without notice. c Every effort will be made to inform TIMS subscribers of the changes when the changes are made. d It is the intention to provide the reasons for the changes and the perceived benefits of those changes
