The Office of Australian War Graves (OAWG), Department of Veterans’ Affairs, is responsible for the official commemoration of those whose deaths have been attributed to their war service.
Those veterans whose deaths have been accepted as war related are generally commemorated by means of an individual headstone, plaque at a grave site, in a Garden of Remembrance or at a crematorium and these commemorations are maintained in perpetuity by OAWG.
The purpose of this Approach To Market is to engage suitably qualified contractors across five (5) geographical locations to provide civil maintenance services for war graves, to a high standard, befitting those whose deaths were attributed to their war service. The period of this contract will be for three (3) years unless varied or extended for further period/s not exceeding 24 months.
The contractors will be expected to utilise OAWG asset data and information systems into work practices where possible and instructed. This data will allow for site and commemoration details to be available to the contractor and will also provide image capture and electronic maintenance recording for quality assurance and processing of payment for services. Adequate training will be provided as part of the induction contract mobilisation stage.
