This Week’s Highlight: Project Management opportunity for PNG program

Papua New Guinea (PNG) and Australia are sovereign partners who share unique and enduring connections that span decades. Ours is a special relationship underpinned by a shared history, geographic proximity, common strategic interests, deep community links, mutual respect, and cooperation across all spheres. The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade is responsible for managing Australia’s international presence and as such administers the programs with our international partners such as PNG. Many of these programs present opportunities for industry in the management and advisory space and often under long term contracts.

This week we look at a Project Management opportunity to lead The new Building Community Engagement (BCEP) in PNG program. This program aims to strengthen citizen-state engagement for improved service delivery and provision of public goods and is funded at $25m per year comprising five interrelated components:

1. Coalitions for Change

2. Media Partnerships

3. Social Accountability Partnerships

4. Church Partnerships

5. Government of PNG Partnerships

These components include both new and existing initiatives that aim to encourage collaboration between implementing partners and build on Australia’s long history of support to civil society in PNG and our countries’ strong people-to-people links. It will take a realistic, politically informed, adaptable, and long-term approach. In recognition of the particular challenges faced by women in PNG, promotion of gender equality will be a major focus.

This opportunity calls for Expressions of Interest (EOI) to manage the project and only organisations that submit an EOI and are subsequently shortlisted will be considered for future stages of the procurement. The next stage for those shortlisted will be a full Request for Tender. Not that teaming arrangements will be considered, so if you are not able to provide the full service, you can submit a teaming response that will allow shortlisted organisations the opportunity to add you to their team. The Contract term will be for an initial four years with another four years of potential extension and services are expected to commence November 2021.
