The combined purchasing power of the Queensland Government has enabled the development of this SOA providing significant benefits and savings to Eligible Customers.

There is a noticeable exception of Toshiba and Canon who are no longer on the Government Contract.
This arrangement has been established to assist Government departments to move away from the acquisition, ownership and management of printing devices, to simply obtain a managed service.
