This week’s highlights: Defence -ADF Deployable Health Capability

The long awaited ADF deployable health RFT has finally been released with a closing date of 9 Nov 17. A highly complex capability requirement has an equally complex tendering requirement to suit! Hence the 5 months tender preparation time frame. No one company will be able to deliver on the full requirement, so the timeframe is to allow for collaborative arrangements to be established that would meet the full scope of the contract.

The RFT calls for a completely deployable health facility that allows for 3 layers of healthcare: Primary, Triage (inc. surgery, labs, pharmacy) and Specialist (inc. surgery, diagnostics and lab). The solution needs to include physical structures, power, water, waste disposal facility, the generation, storage and distribution of oxygen and the supply and support of all medial and dental equipment. More importantly the solution needs to be modular, with the ability to evolve as health technology changes.

To deliver on this requirement is a two part contract that will require tenderers to respond against the acquisition phase (design, development, implementation) and the Support Phase. This opportunity will see the collaboration of many primes and SMEs as this highly competitive tender develops. With large tenders such as this the key aspects to remember are:

Cohesiveness – with so many parties involved in developing the solution, the tender needs to be consistent in its overall message and all the various parts of each volume need to logically flow in a cohesive manner.

Time – this is not a tender submission you want to rush. With both acquisition and support elements, this is close to submitting two full tenders with only minor items of overlap. So considerable time is required for drafting and final review.

Risk – With the complexity in this tender – you need to address all actual and perceived risks along the way throughout the documents. In this requirement government has shifted from a prescriptive solution, this means there are no detailed requirements and industry need to fill in the gaps. This increases the risk to government, so they will be strongly seeking a low risk option with no holes in the solution.

This RFT is a great opportunity to bring industry together to be innovative across a variety of disciplines. If you are after specific advice on this or any other opportunity listed below, feel free to contact us.
