Capital Infrastructure Services Panel Industry Briefing
As part of DFAT's responsibility for implementing the AIFFP, it is currently seeking to establish a panel that can provide Client Side Project Management (CSPM) and/or Head Contractor (HC) services in the Indo-Pacific region.
An industry briefing for prospective panellists to tender for the panel was held on 5 December 2019 in Canberra, and attended by around 90 industry representatives.
Prospective tenderers were advised of the sorts of projects the AIFPP will be funding, which are within sectors including transport, telecommunications, water and sanitation, energy or buildings and developments.
They were advised that the successful panel will need to be flexible, to meet the diverse needs of the AIFPP, DFAT and its partners, as well as New Zealand Government entities. The panel will have a potential life of ten years with a breadth of projects across size, service and sector.
Attendees were reminded of other considerations, such as fraud, child protection, disability-inclusive development, gender equality and environmental safeguards; and were guided through the full tender process and had the opportunity ask questions of the DFAT and the Australian Government Solicitor’s office.
The full session can be viewed online, and a summary of the questions and answers at the industry briefing following the presentations can be found in Austender.
Tenders are due by 2pm (AEST) February 5 via AusTender.
