Touted as the largest Defence procurement program in Australia’s history, the Future Submarine Program (FSP) is set to deliver a fleet of 12 submarines via French prime contractor Naval Group undertaking design and delivery in partnership with Lockheed Martin Australia as combat system integrator.
To support the design activities which have commenced, Defence is seeking to fill a range of platform engineering and technical roles in a ‘secondee’ arrangement located within the FSP offices in Adelaide. The Request for Tender (RFT) released this week, is looking for individuals to fill 19 positions that include project cost, electrical, mechanical, ship systems, threat assessment, signature and sea worthiness assurance engineers as well as technical support, human factors and configuration roles. The secondments are expected to commence around March/April 2018 and run through to 30 Jun 19 as an initial term. These secondments may be extended for up to a further 3 years.
This is the first of two similar RFTs, with the second to be released shortly seeking Combat Systems and Systems Engineering, Integrated Logistics Support, Cost Schedule and Metrics Analysts, and Project Management secondment positions.
This RFT is due 18 Dec 17 and companies can bid for more than one position. The RFT submission requirements are relatively simple and are centred around the CV of the individual being put forward as potential secondees.If you are after specific advice on this tender or any other opportunity listed below, feel free to contact us.
