This Week's Highlight - Security Training for Pacific Nations

As part of its commitments’s to the Pacific region, Australia has agreed to strengthen its security cooperation with Pacific nations and to increase the region’s capacity to manage its security threats. To that end this week we look at the release of a Request for Expressions of Interest (REOI) to implement the Australian Pacific Security College. The purpose of the College will be to deliver and coordinate senior executive and middle management security and law enforcement training to Pacific Islands Countries and regional organisations.

This REOI is the first stage of a two stage tendering process issued by the Australian Aid arm of the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFAT). Following the review of submissions from this first stage, selected tenderers will be shortlisted and invited to submit a tender in the second stage, the Request for Tender (RFT). An optional Industry briefing was held on the 2 Aug, and all related documentation is now on either Austender or the DFAT website for reference and review prior to tender submission. While this is only the first stage, DFAT has requested detailed information and assigned some very specific evaluation criteria, so it is important to allow adequate to time to prepare your response.

This contract is expected to begin in January 2019 and run for a period of 3 years, with the option to extend the term for up to an additional four years. The indicative budget for this initiative is $18.45 million (plus GST) for the initial contract term.

DFAT will not be accepting any part tenders, so in an effort to encourage collaboration, DFAT also invites organisations that have an interest and expertise in delivering aspects of the Australia Pacific Security College, but are unlikely to have the capacity to implement all aspects, to register their interest in partnering with other organisations. This register is on the DFAT Business Opportunities website and will remain open to the market for as long as this REOI is open. This REOI closes 22 Aug 18.
