This Week's Highlight - Geospatial Services

The trend with panels continues, and this week we highlight Defence’s Request For Expressions of Interest (EOI) for Geospatial Services. This requirement is being set by the Australian Geospatial-Intelligence Organisation (AGO) who is looking to modernise and improve its service offering. As with other sections of Defence, the AGO is aligning with the recommendatons of the Defence First Principles Review which were to consolidate all geospatial information functions under the AGO management.

The panel will cover the following geospatial capability requirements: Data Collection, Management and Procurement, Intelligence Production, Foundation Production and Hydrographic Services. While the documentation is unclear, it would be safe to assume that bidders will not be required to supply all the services, but identify the areas of their company expertise. Often several companies combine to form a consortium by which they can offer a broader service, this is acceptable as long as the lines of responsibility are clearly idnetified.

This EOI will be the first in a two step process which will be followed by a Request for Tender intended to be issued only to shortlisted candidates. (Note: the conditions do allow Defence to add additional respondents at the RFT stage). As with all EOIs the focus is on proving your company capability and experience in the required field of expertise as well as demomstrating a low risk profile. No cost information is sought in an EOI. Specifically Defence is seeking demonstrated experience and understanding of the application of geospatial-intelligence services and products to Defence and broader government environment.

This EOI closes on 29 Mar 18 and the panel is intended to run for a 5 year initial term (link to RFT).If you are after specific advice on this topic or any other opportunity listed below, feel free to contact us. You can also subscribe to this newsletter for weekly updates.
