GBRMPA: Procure services for capacity building of Indigenous Rangers
Show close time for other time zones
The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority (GBRMPA) and the National Indigenous Australia Agency (NIAA) have entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU). In part, the MOU seeks to better integrate Indigenous Compliance Ranger partnerships into the existing GBRMPA Incident Management Framework whilst raising awareness of the Project, promoting participation and building operational interest among Indigenous ranger groups, providing ongoing mentoring and field operational support to Indigenous rangers and exploring related fee-for-service opportunities. The Project builds on the Capacity Building of Indigenous Ranger Strategy Project (Compliance) (CBIRS Phase I—Compliance) project which was considered highly successful because it used culturally appropriate teaching methods and a similar approach is considered essential for the new CBIRS Phase II—Incident Response Training Program.
In order to deliver the MOU outcomes, the GBRMPA Indigenous Compliance Team are seeking to engage a suitably qualified Service Provider who:
- has knowledge and/or expertise in the regulation of Government Incident Management Response Framework;
- has demonstrated experience working with Traditional Owners/Indigenous Ranger groups (often from remote locations);
- can contribute to developing a Traditional Owner framework that can be embedded into the existing Government Incident Management Response Framework;
- and has demonstrated experience in cross-pollination of culturally appropriate, contextualised training that will enhance government response and traditional owner partnerships in delivery of services;
- The Service Provider would be required to guide the GBRMPA Steering Group in unlocking the potential contribution of Traditional Owners and Indigenous Land and Sea Rangers to support stronger, more culturally appropriate incident response on the Great Barrier Reef and integrate indigenous knowledge and customary obligations to compliment western science management approaches in all areas of the Project including:
training package development based on generic application of response to broad range of incidents (extreme weather, mass stranding, pollution, pest, COTS/Coral Bleaching);
facilitation of training delivery through inclusion of multiple government body technical experts (GBRMPA Field Management, Australian Maritime Safety Authority, Maritime Safety Queensland, Department of Environment and Science, Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment);
inclusion of cultural heritage and traditional owner management aspiration in all areas of training development, delivery and post-delivery (Reef 2050, GBRMPA Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Heritage Strategy);
reflection of Traditional Owner aspirations into the management plans (Traditional Use of Marine Resource Agreements, Indigenous Land Use Agreement);
provision of clear outputs, outcomes through key performance indicators and other forms of evidence based learning;
The Training facilitation requirements will need to include:
two separate training blocks required between April 2021 and May 2021 (concluded prior to end May 2021); -
note- development of the training program only is required clause A.A.2(f) provides for the organising of venues and logistics);
Service Provider is to be physically present during the training delivery (includes requirement to stay on site overnight including some after hours work);
each training block will be over 5 consecutive days, beginning Monday and ending Friday;
location for training will be AIMS ( Cape Cleveland - south of Townsville);
This Training program will need to:
use culturally appropriate teaching and learning methods;
be tailored to the needs and interests of participants, many of whom will be from remote Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities;
primarily use informal, small group discussion and activities (preferably outside where practical);
involve practical exercises, role plays, scenarios and real-world practice opportunities;
be a chance for two-way communication and learning between participants and invited topic experts/presenters;
support enduring relationships and connection between participants and establish a support network across multiple Indigenous ranger groups.
- The Project will involve four main stages:
- Stage 1—Concept development and high-level program design (QTR 1)
- Stage 2—Detailed design, documentation and logistics (QTR 2-3)
- Stage 3—Program delivery (QTR 4)
- Stage 4 - Consolidation and review (QTR 4)
