This Week’s Highlight: Supply Chain Opportunities for the RAN DDGs

The past few years have seen an increased push toward the establishment of sovereign capability for Australian Defence projects. In the current climate this has only increased, with SME opportunities also expanding. This week we look at a Request for Tender (RFT) for the supply of electrical components as part of the Hobart Class Air Warfare Destroyer (DDG) Supply Chain Project, which represents a direct supply opportunity for Australian SMEs.

The Supply Chain Project will cover the procurement of a range of goods and services in support of the DDGs (HMA Ships Hobart, Brisbane and Sydney V) and will be issued through a number of RFTs representing different equipment categories. The RFT issued this week covers standing offer arrangements to supply general electrical components, with the potential for use to support other RAN vessels, wider Defence uses and uses by other Commonwealth Agencies in addition to DDG support. Suppliers are being sought for provision of general electrical components across the following 15 subcategories:

1. Air-circulating equipment
2. Automatic data processing & support equipment
3. Batteries
4. Capacitors, resistors, semi-conductors, and diodes
5. Circuit breakers
6. Electrical connectors, lugs, terminals, and terminal strips
7. Electrical control equipment
8. Electrical hardware, components
9. Electrical measuring and testing instruments
10. Fuses and fuse accessories
11. Lighting, lighting fixtures, and lamps
12. Microcircuits, boards, cards, and associated hardware
13. Relays and solenoids
14. Switches
15. Transformers and power and distribution equipment

The standing offer arrangement will be established for 3 years with the potential to extend for a further 4 years. While panel arrangements offer no guarantee of procurement, there is an indicative order quantity provided with the intention of placing orders soon after contract signature. An industry briefing is being conducted via a pre-recorded video to be issued on Austender. The Closing date for this RFT is 15th October 2020.
