This Week's Highlight - Australian-Indonesian Maritime Parternship

Australia and Indonesia have a long history of cooperation in the maritime safety domain. The Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) in collaboration with the Indonesian Ministry of Transportation have developed the Australia-Indonesia Maritime Cooperation Plan of Action, aimed at strengthening bilateral maritime engagement. More recently Australia also announced a new bilateral Maritime Capacity Building Initiative in Indonesia to support implementation of this Plan and has secured funding to commence the implementation. To that end, AMSA have issued two Requests for Tender (RFT) this week seeking advisory services to plan and develop two key areas of the plan: a Port State Control Centre of Excellence and a Solid Bulk Cargoes Testing and Research Facility.

Both these RFTs require the provision of a needs analysis and project design to assist AMSA in establishing these two facilities. The successful tenderer will be required to assess related legislation, identify exsiting gaps in training and procedures and develop a plan in liaison with Indonesian authorities & AMSA. The work must commence as soon as practicable after 01 July 2018 and must be completed no later than 31 January 2019. As such, tenderers must be particular in developing a realistic schedule for their tender submission.

A third and related RFT also released this week seeks the provision of technical support services to deliver the AMSA Indonesia Maritime Safety program. The successful tenderer will be required to provide field training and mentoring for port and flag state controllers and marine inspectors as well as support for vessel traffic services. The anticipated term for the resulting Contract is from 01 July 2018 for 3 years, with an option to extend for a further period up to 6 months.

All three RFTs are due 5th June 18.
