This Week’s Highlight: Industry input on Cargo Screening Technology

Requests for Information (RFI) are becoming increasingly popular in the government space as agencies and departments seek to bounce ideas off industry experts. Technically its a form of market research to gauge what’s feasible and available in the market and to gather opinions and perspectives on possible scopes of work, contract terms and procurement models. RFIs are an initial step in the Approach to Market process and are favoured particularly where innovation and technology based solutions are being sought.

This week we look at a new RFI issued by the Department of Home Affairs for Non-intrusive Mass Screening Technology to be deployed at operational environments for international air cargo. The Department is seeking capability to facilitate mass screening of incoming international air cargo (including cargo pallets and Unit Load Device containers) to detect the presence of explosive material and other threats.

Mass screening is not intended to replace targeted screening of individual packages, but provide a layered screening approach, with the aim of informing a decision at the airport precinct to inspect the goods, or more detailed screening and intervention activity at the destination depot.

The Department intends to partner with industry to trial the capability at a single Australian airport location prior to further deployment. This represents a good opportunity for relevant industry to provide input that may shape or influence the final procurement outcome. The Closing date for this RFI is 10 Jul 20.
