Scrivener Dam Safety and Surveillance Services 2019-2022: This RFT seeks a suitably qualified and experienced contractor to provide Safety and Surveillance Services which includes the provision of specialist advice on dam safety management at Scrivener Dam. The task is governed by the existing Dam Safety Management Plan (DSMP) which identifies the hierarchy of responsibilities. The three main aspects of this contract will include:
– Provision of a Dam Safety Engineer,

– Provision of Dam surveillance
The initial term of this service is 1 July 2019 to 30 June 2022 (3 years) with the possibility for a three year extension. The Estimated Value of the RFT is $600,000-$900,000.
Provision of Scrivener Dam Hydrometric Services 2019-2024: This RFT provides a longer contract opportunity (five years) and is seeking to engage a suitably qualified and experienced contractor to operate and maintain the NCA Hydrometric Services network. This network consists of twenty four sites that capture hydrometric data for Dam operations, providing an early flood warning system for the dam.
