This Week’s Highlight: Training Services

Training and education services are another area that is frequently outsourced by government departments. The range of training services can vary quite significantly from agency to agency an the intended audience can either be internal department employees, or an external service offered to the public. These services do not always have to be supplied by a Registered Training Organisation, but there will be specific skills, experience or qualifications called for. This week we look at two opportunities, one for delivery of internal IT training to ATO staff, and the other for the creation of on-line training modules for building practitioners.

Delivery of IT Service Management (ITSM) Training Services: The Australian Taxation Office is seeking specialised training services in a number of IT Service Management (ITSM) related disciplines and methodologies to improve the skill sets of internal ATO staff. Tenderers can bid on one or more of the following courses:

-ITIL 3 Foundation syllabus and certification (+ simulation activities)

-ITIL 4 Foundation syllabus and certification (+ simulation activities)

-SIAM Foundation syllabus

– DevOps Fundamentals syllabus (+ simulation activities)

The ATO is seeking a training syllabus that includes simulation activities for both the ITIL Foundation and DevOps Fundamentals courses. Delivery of these training services will be required in Canberra, Brisbane, Melbourne and Adelaide. The RFQ closing date is the 21st October and the contract is expected to run from Nov 19 – Jun 20, with a 1 year extension option.

Provision of online Continuing Professional Development courses for building practitioners: The Department of Industry, Innovation and Science is seeking a suitable partner/s to assist the Australian Building Codes Board (ABCB) develop and deliver targeted, online CPD courses to building and plumbing practitioners. The successful partner/s is required to assist in delivering the following: 

– New, interactive education and awareness materials about the National Construction Code to improve practitioner understanding (in the form of online CPD courses) 

– Facilitate links to practitioner registration/licencing (as appropriate) 

– Ensure solutions are cost effective, efficient and meet the needs of the construction industry.

The ABCB is ideally looking for a single partner, however multiple partners will be considered if it best meets the project objectives and needs of the different practitioner groups. The contract is expected to run from December 2019 – November 2021. There There is a MANDATORY industry briefing via video conferencing on 16 October 2019. The RFT closing date is the 29th October.
