This Week in Government Tenders

This week’s highlight: Another wave of Defence Infrastructure Upgrades

As we approach the end of the year, a huge number of Requests for Tender (RFTs) hit the streets in an effort to tie up lose ends. This week Department of Defence has issued 22 RFTs as part of the rolling infrastructure upgrade program. These RFTs cover a broad range of requirements and are all due for submission before the year ends. This represents an opportunity for new players to enter the market and compete for some of this work which includes building refurbishments, security, electrical and fire safety system upgrades. The work is also distributed nationally with opportunities, in Western Australia, Queensland, NT and a large number in South Australia and the Shoalhaven region in NSW.

As noted in previous posts, unlike the standard construction project, Defence has some specific requirements that tenderers should make themselves familiar with. Aspects such as security, heritage and operational requirements can affect both cost and schedule as well as a Defence tailored contracting template that needs to be considered.

More information about bidding on these types of tenders can be found at this link.

If you are after specific advice on these tenders or any other opportunity listed below, feel free to contact us.
