PelicanCorp customer wins 2016 GITA ANZ DBYD High Performance Award!

For the past 10 years, The Geospatial Information & Technology Association (GITA) have been awarding the Dial Before You Dig High Performance Award to recognise high performance results by member companies to DBYD enquiries.

Introduced in 2007, the award is made on the basis of results from a competition conducted anonymously by GITA which compares the responses of a member company to a set of enquiries.

The PelicanCorp TicketAccess automation solution has been paramount in providing high quality and quick speed responses to DBYD enquiries, and during it’s time 7 of the GITA High Performance Award winners have been utilising TicketAccess.

These responses are judged on the basis of speed of response, quality of response, availability, accuracy and quality of material provided to the enquirer. The assessment involved DBYD responses from companies that are GITA members and also part of the national DBYD system (which includes most of the major utilities in Australia).

A big congratulations to this year’s winner Unity Water, and to runners up - Western Power and ActewAGL, also both users of the PelicanCorp solution.

About Local Buy

Local Buy is a Queensland Government initiative that was established by the Local Government Association of Queensland (LGAQ) to provide value added procurement services to councils and government entities and to aggregate the purchasing power of local government. A contract established by Local Buy enables councils or other government entities to purchase goods and services from Local Buy contracted suppliers without having to seek tenders or quotes. Local Buy is required by the Local Government Act 2009 to conduct an open tender process to establish these contracts.

Local Buy has also established more than 40 pre-qualified supplier arrangements for Councils since 2012. This effectively means that Councils can access a range of goods and services through a quotation rather than a tender process, saving time and money. These arrangements also provide suppliers an opportunity to partner and engage with Local Government entities through one centralised source.
