This week the highlight is on Electrical Engineering services, in particular two consulting opportunities with Defence and two electrical works opportunities in Western Australia.
Within Defence’s Infrastructure Division is the Directorate of Estate Engineering Policy (DEEP) which as the name suggests is responsible for the provision of advice on engineering policy and planning issues related to Defence estate. DEEP is seeking suitably qualified consultants to provide professional electrical engineering support in hazardous and explosive areas and high voltage electrical engineering. These are two separate opportunities, both offering a three year contract with the potential of extension to five years. They are both seeking the expertise of individuals as opposed to companies so will require the details of key personnel to be nominated in the submission and this will be the main focus of the evaluation. Most of the work is expected to be be carried out at the consultants’ offices however the consultant will be required at DEEP offices, ACT, from time to time. Being a Defence contract, there is a requirement for a baseline security clearance however this is not required at the time of tendering. It is also to be noted that the workload will fluctuate and the opportunity may be offered to more than one consultant. Work is scheduled to commence end Jan/Mar 2018.
The other two opportunities are for electrical services in Western Australia, one being for electrical compliance works at multiple Defence sites and the other being for electrical services as various CSIRO sites. Industry briefs are being held on site for both opportunities, with the Defence brief scheduled for the 15 Nov 17 and CSIRO brief on several dates at differing sites (details can be found in the addendum to the RFT). As with most Defence infrastructure RFTs, you will need to complete a Confidentiality agreement prior to receiving the scope of work documentation. The CSIRO opportunity is broader and the contract will be for an initial 3 year term with the potential to extend to 7 years.
