This Week’s Highlight: Hobart Class DDG Supply Chain

Over the last few years the Department of Defence has made a concerted effort to grow and strengthen Australian Defence industry through greater supplier chain opportunities. This week we look at the latest opportunity for supplu chain participation under the Hobart Class Guided Missile Destroyers (DDGs) Supply Chain Project.

This project seeks to take a category management approach thereby broadening participation opportunities for industry. The category for this RFT is the Diesel Propulsion Engines which include 2 for each ship (3 ships) requires provision of maintenance, repair and training. The maintenance concept for the DDG uses a combination of time based scheduled preventive maintenance tasks, condition based preventive maintenance tasks and as required corrective maintenance tasks. The Services are generally required to be performed on-ship (i.e. to service, repair, calibrate, test, remove or install items) however there may be some instances where Services are required to be performed at the Contractor’s facility such as the repair and overhaul of Repairable Items.

Of note, is that while this arrangement is being established for DDG support, the standing offer will have multi-agency access, allowing other RAN vessels, Defence and other Commonwealth Agencies to use the standing offer
arrangements for the provision of services where and if appropriate. As a standing offer, there is no guarantee of any placement of order nor is there exclusivity that all DDG propulsion engine work will be undertaken through this Contract. The arrangement will be a base 3 year contract with options for a further 1 year.

An industry briefing is being held online with date to be confirmed and the Closing Date for the RFT is 17th March 2021.
