When was the last time you dialled a number and ordered a taxi? For most of us the days of ringing up for a ride are long gone in the age of Uber, GoCatch and other apps, but for our parliamentarians, making a phone call is still the only way to book a Comcar.
The Department of Finance is set to shake up the antiquated system, releasing a tender for a company to develop a software system to allow Comcars to be booked online – and it has to be mobile friendly.
Commonwealth MPs, the Governor General and federal judges are the main users of Comcars, the fleet of (mostly) white Holden Caprices that ferry them from place to place.
The system, which is available in all Australian capital cities and runs 24 hours a day, seven days a week, currently requires someone to phone a staff member in the Finance department to book a car, but the department wants to move the system online.
Finance Chief Information Officer John Sheridan told an industry briefing on Thursday the department wasn’t looking for “bespoke” software. “We are looking for something that is commercial off the shelf,” he said.
