The Commonwealth of Australia, represented by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (‘Department’), invites Tenders for the provision of the Procurement, Administrative and Logistics Management Support Services (PALMSS) Facility, in accordance with this Request for Tender (RFT).
PALMSS is the proposed successor of the Recruitment, Administrative and Management Support Services (RAMSS) facility, which supports the Post in sourcing, and administrative and logistical management of short and long-term advisers. RAMSS is ending on February 2020.
PALMSS will provide an expanded range of services from the original scope of RAMSS, which is limited to engagement of individual advisers providing services directly to the Embassy. The proposed two main additional features include procurement and management of firms or organisations, in addition to individual advisers, and non-advisory services (such as logistical support) and expertise (such as an audit function) on behalf of the Embassy. PALMSS will also be able to provide assistance, support and advice to ongoing programs.
DFAT has a requirement for the implementation of PALMSS scheduled to commence in February 2020 and conclude January 2022. The program will also have the options to extend the contract in 2+1 year periods (totalling up to a further 3 years). Each extension option will be exercised at sole discretion of DFAT.
