NEBDS aims to support better health outcomes for people with Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB) by improving access to subsidised dressings, bandages and ancillary products used in the management of their chronic conditions.
EB is a rare genetic condition that is characterised by extremely fragile and blister prone skin. Management of this condition requires frequent application of specialised dressings and bandages to reduce skin damage and the risk of infection. The cost of dressings can be high, particularly for those with more severe forms of EB.
The Scheme was established in 2010 and is funded by the Australian Government. The Scheme is administered by a Scheme Administrator engaged by the Department.
The activities that are to be delivered as part of the Services include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Scheme transition and readiness;
- Scheme promotion and stakeholder relationships;
- Applications and applications processing;
- Maintain applicants/participants registry and process orders;
- Maintain the Schedule of products, source and stock products;
- Information, education and support;
- Secretariat services to the Clinical Advisory Committee;
- Compliance with relevant regulations;
- Reporting and reimbursement.
Detailed Statement of Requirement is listed under Schedule 1 of the RFT document.
The Department adheres strictly to Commonwealth policy on late tenders. The Department therefore recommends that Tenderers plan to lodge their Tender well before the Closing Time to minimise the possibility of any unforeseen circumstances that may cause the Tenderer to miss the Closing Time.
- The Tenderer must not have had any judicial decisions against it (excluding decisions under appeal) relating to employee entitlements and have not paid the claim.
- The Tenderer, its personnel, and any Subcontractors proposed in the Tender must not, at the Closing Time, be listed as terrorists under section 15 of the Charter of the United Nations Act 1945 (Cth).
- The Tenderer (and any Subcontractor proposed in its Tender) must not be named in the Consolidated list referred to in Regulation 40 the Charter of United Nations (Dealing with Assets) Regulations 2008 (Cth).
Successful Tender will be required to be ready and commence services from 1 July 2018.
