This Week’s Highlight: Provision of PPE

Australian manufacturing has taken centre stage this year with renewed focus and attention. At the heart of that discussion has been the manufacture of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) with many manufacturers repurposing their operations to produce masks, face shields and surgical gowns to meet the unprecedented demand created by a pandemic. So this week’s opportunity may be suited to more suppliers than may have been a year ago as we look at the Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment’s (DAWE) Request for Tender (RFT) for PPE for employees to undertake standard and biosecurity inspection work.

This opportunity seeks the supply of PPE for distribution to the Department’s Regional Offices with clearly identified processes to manage the risks of supplying PPE to the nominated locations should there be future border closures or shutdowns because of the COVID19 pandemic. The tenderers response must detail proposed ordering processes and methods of delivery as well as information on how items are packaged for transport, including minimum orders.

Tenderers are invited to submit responses to all or any combination of the required goods listed below, with estimated order volumes as indicated:
• Level 2 or Level 3 Surgical Masks (268,800 masks)
• P2/N95 Masks (63,200 masks)
• Nitrile Surgical/Examination Gloves (2600 boxes)
• Surgical Gowns (156,000 units)
• Face Shields

It’s important to note that all tender applications must include samples and packaging of goods and any applicable documentation to support claims in reference to Australian or international standards and or Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration registration. PPE will be approved by the departments Workplace Health and Safety (WHS) teams to ensure compliance with the Work Health and Safety Act 2011.

The contract is expected to placed by March 2021 and will have a one year term with options for extension for a further 2.5 years. The closing date for this tender is 24th December 2020.
