The CDIC wishes to invite suitably qualified consultants/contractors to submit a tender for the development and delivery of a training program for ITAR and EAR to be developed and delivered in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth, and Canberra to end June 2020.
The training should provide defence SMEs with practical expertise and an understanding of current best practice for handling technologies controlled under ITAR or EAR. The delivery and course material should be focused on an Australian SME managing US export controlled items from a practical industry perspective, including examples of current best practice. At the completion of the training, SME participants should have developed a thorough understanding of the regulations and what is needed to ensure their companies handle controlled technologies appropriately.
Initiatives such as the US Government’s ongoing Export Control reform and the Australia – US Defence Trade Controls Treaty are to be addressed.
Additionally, there has been a shift in the jurisdiction of control from the ITAR to the EAR following the US Government’s Export Control reform agenda. Given this, many Australian defence SMEs need to revise and implement new processes to manage items under both jurisdictions. The training should address this issue.
Beyond the initial delivery of six workshops, there are three additional extension options, each comprising a minimum of 4 workshops and delivered in subsequent financial years.
The tenderer and any subcontractors proposed in the tender must not be named as not complying with the Workplace Gender Equality Act 2012 (Cth).

The tenderer and any subcontractors proposed in the tender are not insolvent, bankrupt, in liquidation, or under administration or receivership.
