This Week's Highlight - Opportunities with Australian Maritime Safety Authority

This week the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) has released two opportunities to market. The first is for the establishment of a Ship Safety Inspection Centre of Excellence and the second is for a Solid Bulk Cargo – testing and training facility. AMSA is an Australian Government regulatory safety authority with the primary role of delivering services in relation to maritime safety, aviation and marine search and rescue (SAR) and protection of the Australian marine environment. In 2017 Australia announced a new bilateral Maritime Capacity Building Initiative in Indonesia, which in part expands the maritime component of the longstanding Indonesia Transport Safety Assistance Package (ITSAP) program. The expanded ITSAP program now includes the establishment of a Ship Safety Inspection Centre of Excellence and a Solid Bulk Cargoes Testing and Training Facility.

Ship Safety Inspection Centre of Excellence: AMSA is seeking to identify a suitably qualified provider that can work with the AMSA and Indonesian authorities to establish a Ship Safety Inspection Centre of Excellence in Jakarta, Indonesia. The aim is to support the capacity of the Indonesian Government to train and maintain a cadre of competent port state control and flag state control officers to verify that Indonesian and foreign-flagged vessels comply with the relevant mandatory international conventions. The work will consist of three core components; institutional strengthening, knowledge management, and capacity building.

Solid Bulk Cargo Testing and Training Facility: AMSA is seeking a single service provider able to provide support for AMSA in all aspects of the establishment of the ITSAP Facility. The Testing and Training Facility will be a policy and technical training and research centre that will assist Indonesia to implement world best practice in the safe carriage of solid bulk cargoes such as coal, bauxite, iron ore fines and nickel concentrate, and prevent deaths and economic loss caused by bulk cargo liquefaction. It will be based within Indonesia’s Ministry of Transportation.

The anticipated term for both resulting Contracts is from 02 January 2019 until 30 June 2022 and both RFTs close on the 19 Nov 18.
