This session will provide you with an overview of the Office of the Chief Information Officer (OCIO) and the challenges it faces regarding ever increasing technology demands. It will also provide a perspective on how enhanced IT solutions are needed to support many of the Actions contained in the Premier's vision document,The Way Forward. This session is the first step in delivering on Action 1.14: "Increase the Number of Vendors Completing Government IT Work" as the OCIO is announcing implementation of a Managed Service Provider approach for IT work opportunities beginning on April 1.
What does this mean?
The adoption of this new model will allow more companies to bid on Government IT work, thereby increasing competition and choice of vendor. Vendors wishing to compete for Q1 (April 2017) OCIO IT professional services opportunities must register with Flextrack, the Managed Service Provider of record, by mid-February. Representatives from Flextrack will be present at this session that will introduce the company, detail how the new model will work and will provide everything that you need to know to register and participate.
Flextrack is a privately owned Canadian company with a long history in the professional contract and temporary resource industry and is recognized as a leader in Managed Service Provision, Vendor Management Systems and Contingent Workforce Design. Flextrack currently manages the contingent workforce process for over 1,000's of active contractors and over $1 Billion in annual spend under management.
Flextrack's processes and technology have been designed with over 30 years of agency and vendor management experience. Flextrack has provided programs to some of the largest users of contingent workforce in Canada, North America, and across the Globe. Flextrack is also the only company that operates MSP/VMS programs for Canadian Provincial Governments including those in Alberta, British Columbia, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.

The Newfoundland and Labrador Association of Technology Industries (NATI) invites eligible companies to submit applications to participate in the 2017- 2018 NATI Export Internship Program.

Companies will contribute a minimum of 25% ($10,000) of the graduate's salary and benefits to the minimum per annum salary of $40,000, excluding all mandatory employer-related costs (MERC). The Program will contribute 75% of the intern's salary to a maximum of $30,000.
The Program is open to eligible NL-based firms who are exporting or are export ready. The selected graduates will have graduated within the past three years from a recognized post- secondary institution and reside in Newfoundland & Labrador. The NATI Export Internship Program provides potential & existing exporters with support to acquire & develop in-house quality trade advisory services, while providing new graduates with the opportunity to work for some of NL's most promising companies.
