“TARS” has identified contractors from the tender for audit works for import substitution of IT infrastructure

Agency “TARS” is going to carry out import substitution of IT infrastructure. Import substitution is planned in Moscow, in commercial data centers, in Russian branches and in a foreign representative office in Beijing, the C-News portal reports. The tender for the preliminary revision work was announced on March 21, 2023 with an initial contract amount of ₽18.6 million. Applications were accepted until March 31.

Contractors for the inspection of the IT infrastructure and the further formation of the “road map” of migration were identified: LLC “MKDG” and “Lanit-integration”.

The sum of the collective offer of the winners turned out to be less than the initial one and amounted to ₽14.9 million. The work is scheduled until December 31, 2023.

One of the goals of the migration is the agency’s desire to comply with the decree of the President of Russia Vladimir Putin of May 1, 2022 No. 250 and the order of the Ministry of Statistics of January 18, 2023 No. 21.

It follows from the terms of reference of the tender that TARS uses network infrastructure equipment from American Cisco and Russian Eltex. The agency uses VMWare solutions as virtualization platforms, and Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager and JAMF Pro as workstation configuration management systems.

According to the technical task, it can be understood that the number of physical servers in the agency is no more than 150, virtual machines – no more than 2.1 thousand, data storage systems – no more than 30, network infrastructure devices – no more than 200, workstations running MacOS – no more than 200 workstations running Windows — no more than 1,300.

Also, the technical task does not specify “the number and types of information systems, printing devices, IT components and other IT assets” and it “cannot be reliably determined by the customer.” The exact amount must be determined by the performer based on the results of the audit.
