This Week's Highlight - Direction Finding Equipment for AMSA

The Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) is an Australian Government regulatory body with the primary role of delivering services in relation to maritime safety, aviation and marine search and rescue (SAR) as well as protection of the Australian marine environment. This week AMSA has issued two Approaches to Market seeking direction finding equipment both as a panel arrangement, and as sole provider.

Personal Locator Beacon (PLB) – MT410G with GPS: AMSA currently utilises lifejackets for air search observer activities that are fitted with a PLB. The PLBs have a set life of type which is due to expire this year. AMSA is seeking a replacement that must fit within the existing life jacket pocket whose specifications are provided within the Request For Tender (RFT). The total number of PLBs required is 320, but these are to be delivered over a period of 12 months and are to have varying expiry dates to allow for a staggered replacement. The anticipated schedule of replacement is:

– 01 June 2019 X 90 PLBs

– 01 August 2019 X 90 PLBs

– 01 Jan 2020 X 80 PLBs

– 01 April 2020 X 60 PLBs (optional – potentially only a portion of these may be required)

This RFT closes 3 Jun 19.

Ground Direction Finding Units – Panel: This RFT seeks to establish a panel of multiple Service Providers that are able to provide equipment to be used on the surface (land or water) for direction finding to radio signals, and also to service and maintain that equipment if required. The RFT provides a detailed list of requirements, which include mandatory criteria regarding weight, size, range and power source. Also units must be available for purchase from 1 Aug 19. Note that your tender response must meet the mandatory criteria for your submission to be considered for evaluation. The resultant Deed of Standing Offer is expected to commence in July 2019 for an initial term of 3 years with two one year extension options available. This RFT closes 6 Jun 19.
