This Week’s Highlight: Opportunities in Energy Advisory and Research

As noted previously, panels are becoming increasingly popular with government agencies looking to find efficiencies in procurement. Furthermore, where synergies exist, government will also seek to consolidate panels under one arrangement to reduce management overhead. This week we look at such an opportunity issued by the Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources which is seeking to establish an Energy Business and Technical Services Panel.

The Department’s Energy Group is responsible for supporting the reliable, affordable, sustainable and secure operations of energy markets and currently manages two panels, the Energy Technical and Business Services panel which will expire on 30 September 2020 and the COAG Energy Council Panel of Consultants which will expire on 31 July 2020. Through this RFT process, the Department intends to establish a single panel for the provision of Energy Business and Technical Services to replace the two current expiring panels.

There are nine Category of Service streams under the proposed Panel and Tenderers may nominate one or more category in their response. These categories are:

– policy, technical and strategic advice
– research and analysis
– government, industry, consumer advice and liaison
– industry training and facilitation
– emergency preparedness and response
– compliance and monitoring
– appliance and equipment energy efficiency and rating
– building energy modelling, rating, compliance and auditing
– response to the impact of COVID-19/pandemics on the energy sector and consumers in Australia

The initial term of the contract is intended to be 3 years with an option to extend for up to 2 years. An online industry brief is being held on the 30 Jun and 2 July with the RFT closing on 20th July 2020.
