This Week’s Highlight: Recruiting Services

Most government departments will outsource their recruitment service in order to introduce a level of expertise, efficiency and transparency. While most recruitment across Commonwealth government is very similar in that it meets Australian Public Service legislation, a few agencies particularly those with armed forces, require specialist services. This week, the Department of Defence has issued a notice advising industry of an upcoming Defence Force Recruiting Services Contract – Industry Engagement.

This activity will result in the replacement of the existing Recruitment Services Contract due to expire 31 October 2022. The scope of the current contract currently includes:

– Recruiting Operations (including case management of candidates throughout the recruitment process);

– Medical Testing;

– Psychological Testing and Assessment;

– Marketing; and

– Digital Services (including but not limited to development and implementation of attraction activities to generate the required quality and number of enquiries).

Defence will be looking for innovative ideas as well as value for money in the next iteration of the contract. An industry briefing is scheduled to be held on 14 November 2019 in Canberra. This will be followed by a Request For Information (RFI) seeking feedback from industry to assist Defence in understanding the capabilities and capacity of industry. Like all RFIs this is an opportunity to provide visibility of your company and potentially influence the final procurement outcome.
