TENDERS AND RFPs
A request for proposals to supply data
integration services for AFAMS (the national aircraft tracking, event
logging and messaging system) from late-2014 is now expected to be published in
(Please see the “Tracking” page of this
website for more information on AFAMS).
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.
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.
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 any 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.
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 do
ask for forbearance and patience!
