RFP LAS 2013 is now closed.
In this process NAFC invited capable
organisations to submit proposals for the supply of Large fixed wing Airtanker services (including supervision aircraft) to
support bushfire fighting in Australia from 2013-14 onwards.
The process is known
as the “Request for Proposals for Large Airtanker
Services” or “RFP LAS 2013”.
Submission of responses
closed on Wednesday 9th January 2013.
The following documents
are still available, for reference purposes, at the links on this page, under
the “RFP Documents Download” area below:
the Request for Proposals
(RFP) document; and
the Specimen Contract on which proposals were based
(note: this is the same Specimen Contract as used in NAFC’s parallel Invitation
to Tender for Aerial Firefighting Services 2013+” process); and
the Large Airtanker
Supplementary Contract Requirements document, which provides some additional
information about the likely application of the Specimen Contract to Large Airtankers; and
the “How to Respond to the
Request for Proposals for Large Airtanker Services
2013” guide; and
a number of forms designed to be
completed in either Microsoft Excel or Microsoft Word:
Aircraft and Services - Aircraft Data
Form (MS Excel form)
Aircraft and Services - Services and
Pricing Form (MS Excel form)
Aircraft and Services - Large Airtanker Scenario Form (MS Word form).
These forms (along with other forms) comprised a key part of any
response to this RFP. Because these
forms include their own specific instructions, and in some cases are relatively
complex, they were made available here. These forms, and the other response forms,
were also available via the tender submission portal (see below), but were
provided at the Downloads area below for convenience, as proposers may have wished
to download and become familiar with these particular forms early in the
quoted in the RFP – such as NAFC Standards - are available at
the general Downloads page of the NAFC website. (Click on the Downloads
tab above, or click here to go straight to the general Downloads page
for these supporting documents - but remember the links to the specific
RFP documents are at the RFP Documents Download area, below.)
