Closed ATM View - AWM000484 REOI 2
Construction Contractor(s) for Main Works Packages 1 and 3 (Re-release)
Show close time for other time zones
On 13 January 2021 the Memorial issued a Request for Expressions of Interest (REOI) for Construction Contractor(s) for Main Works Packages (‘MWP’) through AusTender. The REOI closed on 3 March 2021.
Since the conclusion of the REOI process, a number of successful Respondents have withdrawn from their nominated Works Package due to other work priorities, resulting in a reduced number of Respondents remaining to be invited to participate in the Request for Tender (RFT) phase for Main Works Packages 1 and 3.
The Memorial is exercising its rights under paragraph 18.1.1(a) of the REOI to vary the REOI process to reopen the REOI and increase the number of shortlisted Respondents to be invited to participate in the Request for Tender (RFT) for MWP1 and 3.
This Request for Expressions of Interest (REOI) invites organisations to provide a Response to be evaluated, with shortlisted Respondents being invited to submit a Tender for the construction of MWP1 and / or MWP3.
The scope of work under the proposed contract(s) is set out in Schedule 1 -Project and Scope Brief and includes the construction of the major new build elements of the Project for MWP1 and MWP3 only (the ‘Requirement’).
The shortlist will not be increased for Main Works Package 2. The Memorial will not consider any further expressions of interest for MWP2.
There are currently two (2) entities shortlisted for each of MWP1 and MWP3 as a result of the initial REOI. These entities are not required to submit a further expression of interest for packages for which they have already been shortlisted.
Important Note—Project Remains Subject to NCA Approval
Respondents should note that the Australian War Memorial (‘Memorial’) Development Project (the ‘Project’) Main Works remains subject National Capital Authority (‘NCA’) Main Works Approval.
The Memorial does not guarantee that this approval will be secured. Should the approval not be secured, and without limiting any other right set out in the REOI, the Memorial may terminate the REOI process. If the process is terminated, the Memorial is not liable for any costs incurred in reliance on the REOI or associated with the preparation of any Response.
Respondents must not contact the NCA directly in relation to the Project. Any questions about the role of the NCA in the Project are to be directed to the Contact Officer in clause 1.6, and if further information is required by Respondents to prepare a Response, the Memorial will issue an Addendum.
