Many public sector agencies struggle to achieve planned ICT delivery timeframes, often hampered by lengthy and complex procurement processes. Fronde fully supports the NZ Government Marketplace, which makes it easier for public sector agencies to access Fronde’s services and expertise without delay.
Fronde’s portfolio of Marketplace services supports unified digital platforms, collaboration technology and digital modernisation. We combine world-class cloud and platform technologies with local business expertise to help agencies maximise value from public sector funding.
Our Marketplace services have been assessed and approved by the Department of Internal Affairs, so that you can be assured of simplifying purchasing and contracting whilst upholding the government rules of sourcing.
Fronde can help you navigate the Marketplace and customise services for your specific needs. We continue to add more services to our catalogue as the Marketplace opens new channels.
Marketplace is the Department of Internal Affairs’ (DIA) flexible and secure space for agencies and suppliers to buy and sell products and services.
Launched in 2018, DIA has recently refreshed Marketplace with a new look and an expanded catalogue. At Fronde we are committed to supporting the Marketplace and continuing to expand our Marketplace portfolio.
At Fronde we know that the best strategy for adapting to tomorrow is by laying world-class foundations today. That’s why we partner with the world’s best technology providers – you might know them: AWS, Google, Salesforce, Oracle, Ping, SYL and more. And then we send in the talent and team to deploy them right here, right now, just for you.
Our latest Marketplace offerings are just one component of Fronde’s 360° portfolio of services.
We’ll be adding more to the Marketplace over time to reflect the practical help we can provide in transitioning and supporting your people, applications and systems in today’s collaborative cloud-first world.
You can join Fronde 360° at any stage of your technology’s lifecycle: from the early stages of application modernisation and design to managing your cloud platforms with CloudOps or implementing repeatable as-a-service Fronde Solutions.
We currently offer all of these services outside of the Marketplace - from consulting and advisory through to comprehensive managed services to help you manage your day to day operations.
We offer flexibility in how we deliver our services. Fronde 360° can be tailored to meet your needs and approach, supporting three delivery modes:
Outcomes / As-a-service: We take full responsibility for project or as-a-service outcomes.
Collaboration: We collaborate and work alongside your team, sharing responsibility for the project or service.
Fronde Fulfil: We source and provide contracted resources and experts to supplement your team. You take responsibility for the project or service.
