This Week’s Highlight: Industrial Manufacturing Equipment for Defence Research

The Department of Defence has several procurement Groups which issue Tenders, most commonly Capability and Sustainment Group (CASG) for Capital equipment and systems, Defence Support and Reform Group (DSRG) for Defence estate upgrades and Defence Science and Technology Group (DSTG)for research related equipment and services. This week we look at three opportunities issued by DSTG seeking manufacturing equipment for its engineering research labs in Edinburgh South Australia.

The three opportunities are issued as Requests for Quote (RFQ), and as such the response requirements are relatively simple. The RFQs are as follows:
Industrial Polymer 3D Printing System RFT due 17 Mar 20
Large Format 5 Axis CNC Milling Machine RFT due 16 Mar 20
Metal Additive Manufacturing System RFT due 11 Mar 20

All three RFQs are for equipment deliveries to DSTG in South Australia and require the provider to deliver, install and commission the system as well as provide training to DSTG staff on system use and maintenance. Delivery is required mid June for all systems and RFQs will be assessed mostly on price and the ability for the supplier to comply with the list of essential requirements.

If you are after further advice on this topic or any opportunity listed below, feel free to contact us. You can also subscribe to this newsletter for regular weekly updates.
