This Week’s Highlight: Air Transport Standing Offer Panel

As government departments shrink in size the need to outsource to industry increases. Many government departments have progressively shed capacity to a level that supports routine expected requirements, and established arrangements with industry to supplement this capacity in times of high demand. This has proven to be a cost saving to government reducing the quantity of both physical assets and human resources. This week we look at an opportunity issued by Department of Defence seeking industry support for the movement of cargo and passengers by air to provide additional surge capacity and capability. Defence is looking to establish an Air Transport Standing Offer Panel to support both local and international movements.

Panel members will need to be capable of supplying their own aeroplanes and/or source aeroplanes of varying sizes and capabilities in order to facilitate movements of passengers, their baggage and cargo by air, as well as performing various air-borne tasks as required. Ad-hoc tasking may include Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Relief and Defence Aid to the Civil Community. The Panel will be structured for use primarily by the Department of Defence, however the Deed will be open for use by other Commonwealth agencies and it is expected that Panellists will have a physical presence in Australia.

Being a panel arrangement means there is no guarantee of any order placement once the Deed is established, however Defence has advise that the tender documentation for the Middle East Region Air Sustainment Service (MASS) will be released as a Tasking Statement to the new Panel members immediately once the Panel is constituted. This tender closes on the 2 October 2020, with the panel expected to commence a month later.
