QAssure is managed by CCIQ – Queensland’s peak business body – and the Queensland Government.
QAssure is the first step in the revised GITC accreditation process, and also seeks to easily connect qualified ICT suppliers with public and private sector organisations seeking their services.
Our approval is not given without considerable checks and balances. Only ICT suppliers that are credible and fit for purpose are accredited. As a result, our QAssure tick of approval gives vendors confidence in the quality and service they’ll receive from the businesses we list.
How accreditation works
QAssure accredits ICT suppliers as a pre-requisite of the Queensland Government’s GITC accreditation process.
It is a streamlined, online version of the manual process previously run by the Queensland Government, and seeks to set up a win-win environment where the best Queensland ICT suppliers are ready to be selected for Queensland-based jobs.
The way it works is simple.
First, ICT suppliers register their business details online, including their capabilities, financials and insurances.
Then, after a CCIQ checking and approvals process, accredited businesses are provided with a QAssure number and are listed for 12 months on our QAssure website. Any organisation seeking an ICT professional – both public and private sector clients – can search our register.
There is no fee to search our register, or to contact an ICT professional for work.
At the end of 12 months, ICT suppliers are invited to revisit the accreditation process, or are withdrawn from the register. This way, details available at QAssure are up-to-date, and clients seeking ICT services are assured the information is relevant and of high quality. (Notification is also sent to the Queensland Government GITC Office.)
