The tender process will establish a Panel of consultants for the provision of infrastructure-related services in support of the Commonwealth across Australia. The Panel will comprise 8 Service Categories.
The Commonwealth will engage Panel Consultants appointed to the Panel to provide services to Commonwealth projects and locations on an "as needs" basis. The Panel may also be used for the direct engagement of Panel Consultants by Commonwealth contractors (refer to Question 12 below).
The primary purpose of the Panel is to enable the Commonwealth and its contractors to build a strong, collaborative relationship with Panel Consultants who are prepared to invest time and resources to identify, understand and service Commonwealth infrastructure services requirements.
The Panel is expected to commence in June 2022. The initial term of the Panel will be for a period of five years. The Commonwealth will have options to extend the Panel for up to a further three additional years.Click for more info
