This Week's Highlight - Health Services in PNG

The Australian Government’s primary law enforcement agency is the Australian Federal Police (AFP). The AFP also undertakes the role of international policing on behalf of Australia and is the chief source of advice to the Australian Government on broader policing issues. This week we look at one of the international roles undertaken by the AFP in Papua New Guinea (PNG) – Health Support Services.

The AFP is seeking a Health Support Services provider for PNG to allow the Commonwealth to meet its duty of care to deployed personnel and specified others in the region. This broadly encompasses the capacity to retrieve, treat and stabilise casualties and provide comprehensive primary health care. Similar to Defence deployed health units, service providers are to be experienced in working in high risk environments and are to note that the AFP will be operating in a dangerous environment where there is the potential for violent action and considerable risk of transport accidents. As such, it is crucial that tender responses demonstrate a clear understanding of the working environment and address all essential criteria.

Included in the required service, the Contractor is to provide an ambulance and air medical retrieval system at both Port Moresby and Lae as the primary locations for service. It is expected that Port Moresby will be operational on the service commencement date as the higher priority site, with Lae operational at the same time or soon after. Health services are to be available on a 24 hour, seven day per week basis, and most importantly, all contracted health care must meet Australian Health Standards.

The initial contract period is three years with the option of three, one year extensions. The RFT closes 12 Jun 19.
