TENDERS AND RFPs
There are currently no open public tenders or RFPs.
Please note that from
time to time NAFC may call tenders from a defined group of potential suppliers.
Although we will publicly advertise
tenders whenever possible, there may be circumstances (such as urgency, for example)
where a limited field tender is the only practical approach. Where this occurs, initial communication with
potential tenderers will be by email. Documents
for these tenders will not normally be available on this website.
for ITT FRS 2013+ - Light fixed wing aircraft services
for bushfire reconnaissance have closed (see
Past Tenders and RFPs below).
Tenders for ITT AFS
2013+ have closed (see Past Tenders and RFPs
RFP LAS 2013 has closed (see Past Tenders and
TENDERS AND RFPs
A call for proposals to supply data integration services for AFAMS (the
national aircraft tracking, event logging and messaging system) from mid-2014
is now expected to be published in early 2014.
(Please see the “Tracking” page of this website
for more information on AFAMS).
ELECTRONIC SUBMISSION OF TENDERS AND PROPOSALS
Please note that NAFC is
moving all public procurement processes to a web-based electronic tendering
system – the NAFC Electronic Tender Portal (NETP). You will need to register on
the system in order to access full documentation and updates for advertised
tenders and to tender or submit a proposal.
Details of how to register are published in the “How to” guides that
accompany each invitation process.
For most processes,
submitting a response involves registering on the NETP, downloading template
documents, completing these documents and then uploading them back to the
NETP. Respondents will usually need
access to Microsoft Word and Excel, running under Microsoft Windows, to
complete a response.
If you are considering submitting a tender or proposal, make sure
that you carefully examine the relevant “how to” guide, study exactly how the
system works, and how to submit. Leave yourself enough time to register and get
everything in before the closing date.
The electronic tender system
offers significant benefits in the long run, but it is complex to implement and
has some constraints imposed by the third-party software, so we ask for forbearance
NOTIFICATION AND ADVERTISING
All public open approaches
to market will be advertised on this page and in “The Australian” newspaper.
You can also subscribe
to our tender notification service (see below). We suggest that you do not rely entirely on the NAFC tender
notification service as notification emails can be treated as spam or junk mail
by your internet service provider or email program.
Alternatively you may be
able to set up your favourite internet search engine to keep checking for
changes to this page.
