This Week’s Highlight: Support Unit for Gender Equality

The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) promotes and protects Australia’s international interests to support our security and prosperity. The Department works with international partners and other countries to tackle global challenges, increase trade and investment opportunities, protect international rules, keep our region stable and help Australians overseas. This broad scope translates to a broad range of opportunities for industry to work with DFAT.

This week we look at DFAT’s Expressions of Interest for the design and implementation of the Support Unit for Gender Equality (SURGE) The Support Unit will seek to strengthen the outcomes of Australia’s development program on gender equality and women’s and girls’ empowerment through the provision of high quality technical expertise. Expertise is being called for to ensure that DFAT staff have access to timely, high quality advice and resources to strengthen policy engagement efforts related to gender equality. This will assist with developing best practice on gender equality and women’s empowerment across DFAT and strengthen the capacity of DFAT staff.

The Support Unit aims to deliver the following functions, which will help step up the delivery of technical assistance.

1. Sourcing and mobilising gender technical expertise
2. A help-desk rapid response knowledge request service
3. Knowledge management /evidence generation and learning uptake
4. Support for professional development for DFAT staff, including GEB staff
5. Support for the implementation of the Indo-Pacific Gender Equality Strategy and its objectives, including the Gender Equality Fund.

This is a two stage procurement, with only tenderers that are shortlisted from the EOI being invited to compete in the second stage Request for Tender. DFAT is also looking to conduct a collaboration phase with shortlisted tenderers prior to release of the RFT. The allocated budget is estimated at $1million/year, with contract term being 2 years initially and options to extend for a further 3 years.

Closing Date for the EOI is Monday 22 Nov 21 with services to aimed to start around Early March 2022.
