Hosted online recruitment services

The Department of Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy has issued a Request for Tender for Provision of a hosted and fully intergrated online recruitment service . They don't want any software or to run any systems, just use a web based service hosted elsewhere. The Australian Bureau of Statistics previously issued a Request for E-Recruitment software. I speculated that one system could be hosted for multiple agencies. Perhaps ABS could provide DBCDE's service.
